Promotion of Clinical/Adjunct "Prefix" Faculty
All requests for promotion of faculty with a "prefix" rank in the Clinical/Adjunct Appointment System must be initiated at the department level.
The chairperson of the appropriate academic department shall have final responsibility and authority for recommending any candidate to the Dean of the College of Human Medicine for initial appointment, reappointment, or promotion. Refer to the CHM guidelines for clinical/adjunct appointments here.
PROMOTION PROCESS AND PROCEDURES
Department Review Process
Each department is responsible for determining the timelines, process, and procedures for the review and approval of promotions of faculty in the Clinical/Adjunct Appointment System.
Community-based faculty who desire to be promoted and who believe they meet the minimum requirements and/or guidelines, and can provide the required documentation, should contact their department chairperson or other department-designated individual to discuss the nomination process.
Departments are responsible for collecting the promotion application form and any other required documentation from the candidate. Once approved at the department level the application form and supporting documentation must be submitted to the CHM Office of Faculty Affairs and Development (FAD) at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submission to FAD is the first working day in March.
