Welcome to our Faculty Gateway

The mission of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine is to educate medical students, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows in accordance with the highest professional standards; to prepare clinicians to practice patient-centered medicine of the highest standard, and to identify and answer fundamental questions in medicine and science. The Part-Time Faculty (PTF) share in, and are integral to, the tripartite mission of teaching, research and patient care.

Pillars of Our Mission

Part-Time Faculty may engage in the mission through the same core processes as full-time faculty. As referenced in the Blue Book, considerations for the appointment or promotion of part time faculty involves increased focus on clinical activities, teaching and service. As discussed in the Silver Book, reputation beyond the SOM and evidence of creative scholarship in research, education, clinical distinction, program building and service are considered in the promotion process, and constitute pillars of membership in the part-time faculty.
