Rendering of proposed building for Frist College of Medicine

The Thomas F. Frist, Jr. College of Medicine at Belmont University is now hiring clinical adjunct faculty and is seeking those passionate about medical student teaching, role-modeling and whole-person care. The College seeks to develop physicians of character, purpose and wisdom with a transformational mindset.

Clinical adjunct faculty should be eager to collaborate, professional in communication and team-based interactions, a champion for students and willing to learn and employ newer teaching modalities.

Along with basic science foundation and clinical experiences, curriculum will feature innovation, collaboration with other health professionals, community engagement, consideration of faith and ethics in medicine and examination of social determinants of health. The College’s whole-person approach to healthcare informs all aspects including education, clinical experience and College leadership.  

In addition to hiring adjunct faculty, the Frist College of Medicine has launched its website, www.belmont.edu/medicine. The new site shares information about the College’s history, accreditation process, current faculty and staff, curriculum and open positions.

Belmont is establishing the Frist College of Medicine in alliance with HCA Healthcare, one of the nation’s leading providers of healthcare services with 187 hospitals across the country and in the United Kingdom. This partnership is built on a strong history between Belmont and HCA, whose Nashville-based TriStar Health will provide residencies and clinical rotations for students in the College of Medicine.

Belmont in 2021 broke ground on the 160,000 square foot facility that will later house the new Frist College of Medicine. The site sits one block from the Gordon E. Inman Center and McWhorter Hall and will add to the campus’ health care corridor. The facility is designed to create a fully interdisciplinary educational experience, allowing students in Belmont’s existing health science programs to interact with aspiring MDs and work together, just as they would within the healthcare delivery system.
