Promotion guidelines

Clinical Faculty promotions occur once each academic year. The Clinical Faculty rank is designated according to qualifications and service to the Department of Pediatrics. To be proposed for promotion, you must meet the requirements of the next rank.

Every year a preliminary request is sent to sites, regional offices and the program director to review the current clinical faculty that may be eligible for promotion. A request will be sent to each proposed clinical faculty member requesting documents for promotion. All promotion documentation is required to be returned to our office, with the appropriate letters of recommendation, by the specified promotion deadline. See general dates below.

Please talk with your Site Coordinator or Regional Dean to discuss promotion and the criteria required to begin the promotion process.
