We became physicians because we really enjoy taking care of patients. To faculty members who are passionate about their work with patients, it may not always be clear how their dedication, hard work, and innovative approaches to patient care can meet the criteria for academic promotion at Johns Hopkins.
The Associate Professor Promotion Committee (APPC) is collaborating with the Office of Faculty Development to provide a two-hour overview of how faculty such as these can be promoted. The Faculty Forum “Passionate about Patient Care” will highlight Hopkins faculty who used their passion for patient care to create new knowledge which they have disseminated in novel ways, thereby establishing them as national experts in their fields, and leading them to be promoted to the rank of Associate Professor as Clinicians with Distinction and Clinical Program Builders.
Clinicians of Distinction are those people who are valued for their outstanding patient care as evidenced by patient outcome measures, patient referrals and invitations to speak and teach about their innovative methods and techniques. For this group of faculty, it is not just enough to have patient referrals, but to be able to document scholarship based on data gathered through outstanding patient care. Strategies include:
· how to document national expertise related to the treatment of a particular disease,
· how to measure national clinical recognition (for example, through national associations that gather data and have links with the most recognized clinicians and centers around the country) or through
· funding and research awards for promoting better education of patients, funding fellows or awards for supporting the disease centers, etc., as well as,
· being able to document a national impact on clinical care, for example, leading or participating in discussions to change the standards of care or “being at the right table”. When clinical guidelines change in response to the work of a faculty member that has influenced care nationally, this is considered to be evidence of scholarship in the field, or
· building infrastructures within divisions and departments to support the busy clinician’s efforts to produce scholarship, (for example, assistance with IRB submission and renewal, statistical support, copy editors for papers, IT support, etc.)
Clinical Program Builders are those faculty who lead us in finding innovative ways to treat disease, with evidence of their excellence found in the number of institutions that copy or endorse their programs and strategies. Commonly, clinicians with distinction are also clinical program builders. Unique strategies and opportunities might include taking a leadership role in finding:
· better uses for technology, for example research opportunities that EPIC or other online databases might afford,
· new opportunities to develop clinical opportunities abroad
·collaborations and partnerships with new organizations or in new ways that improve patient care.
The forum will offer case examples from Hopkins faculty that include strategies about: the kind of activities that are relevant to these tracks, methods to add meaning and usefulness to innovative ideas and strategies, how to make your work known to others, and how to build a national reputation and market your ideas. We invite you to hear their stories, and have a dialogue with them and members of the promotions committee, select department chairs and leadership in faculty development.

Educator’s Portfolio is a collection of class materials that documents the quantity and quality of a faculty member’s educational activities. Since a criterion for rank at JHUSOM is “evidence of creative scholarship in the area of …primary expertise,” those faculty who identify education as their primary expertise will use the Educator’s Portfolio to convey evidence of creative educational scholarship. It can also be used as a faculty development tool. During this presentation, we will review the history of portfolio use in faculty development, and the steps to creating your educator’s portfolio, either on paper or electronically.
