School of Medicine


The School of Medicine and each of its faculty members share a fundamental interest in sustaining and facilitating the faculty's continuing enthusiasm and effort in scholarship, teaching, and professional service. The school's policy on faculty development reflects its high priority on maintaining and developing every faculty member's professional engagement throughout his or her career.

In each department of the School of Medicine, the Chair conducts periodic professional development reviews, based on performance in the areas of teaching, scholarship, and service, with each regular, full-time faculty member who holds primary appointment in the department. The Chair and faculty member also create a professional development plan for the faculty member.

General criteria for performance and promotion in these areas are included in the School of Medicine
Guidelines for Appointment, Promotion, and Tenure.
