Title Approval

Candidates for faculty titles in the College of Medicine must meet the criteria for the specific title series and rank for which they are applying. Candidates must provide their CV and letters of recommendation to the Department P&T Coordinator, and work with the coordinator to provide additional information as required.

After the documentation has been submitted, the title approval packet will be reviewed for approval by the department promotion and tenure committee and department head and then forwarded to the Office of Faculty Affairs. Title approval packets will then be reviewed by the College of Medicine Committee on Appointments, Promotion and Tenure, as appropriate, followed by review by the Dean or designee.

Faculty can move from one non-tenure-eligible/career-track path to another, following the process to transfer between tracks.
