FIFTH EDITION 2016
IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT NOTHING IN THIS FACULTY PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT GUIDE CAN BE USED TO SUPERCEDE THE SCHOOL OF MEDICINE’S POLICY AND GUIDELINES GOVERNING APPOINTMENTS, PROMOTIONS AND PROFESSIONAL ACTIVITIES OF THE FULL TIME FACULTY (THE “GOLD BOOK”), AS IT MAY BE AMENDED, OR ANY POLICY OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY.
The "Silver Book" is the accompanying guide to the Policies and Guidelines book – referred to as the "Gold Book" - for full-time faculty of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. The current revision of the Silver Book is based on the work of the Clinical Excellence Committee, convened by Dean Paul Rothman in 2014. Earlier revisions were based on the work of the Committee on Clinician Educators and the Committee on the Promotion of the Clinical Program Builder and Innovator, both convened by Dean Edward Miller in 2004 and 2009, respectively. Revisions of the Silver Book took into consideration the review, commentary, and suggestions received from a large sample of faculty and from the Faculty Senate, the Associate Professor Promotion Committee, and the Professorial Promotion Committee.
