Preparing for Promotion to Clinical Associate Professor in the Clinician Educator Line
Tuesday, January 21, 2014 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM
This workshop is designed for Clinical Assistant Professors in the Clinician Educator line who are looking ahead to promotion to Clinical Associate Professor and looking to better understand the evaluation process of clinical and teaching excellence.
As indicated in the School of Medicine Faculty Handbook, “Promotion to the rank of Clinical Associate Professor will be considered for those who have demonstrated excellence in the overall mix of clinical care and clinical teaching (and, if applicable, institutional service and/or scholarly activities) during their terms of appointment as Clinical Assistant Professor. There should be evidence that candidates have attained regional recognition as superior clinicians and clinical teachers. There should be evidence that the candidates will successfully continue to fill the programmatic need for which the appointment is made and to make meritorious contributions to their discipline and to the School. In special cases, other factors may considered for promotion for those individuals who do not have regional prominence, including extraordinary contributions in such broadly defined areas as teaching and clinical excellence, clinical innovation, program building and/or administrative activities.”
This workshop will explore the criteria for promotion, the timing of the action, preparation of the curriculum vitae and candidate’s statement, proportionality of contributions, evaluations from referees, and the review process of clinical excellence and teaching evaluations, as well as the evaluative measures applied by the School of Medicine’s Clinician Educator Appointments and Promotions Committee in assessing whether a candidate has met the criteria.
