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.

We are very happy to announce

To school of medicine faculty and JHM leadership

Dear Colleagues,

A few weeks ago, we updated you on the development of a clinical promotion track and asked for your input on the proposal. Thank you to all who provided feedback, as well as to the many who participated along the way.

Last week, following a unanimous vote of support by the faculty senate, the Advisory Board of the Medical Faculty approved the creation of a clinical track in our promotions process, as well as the associated promotion criteria. We believe this step underscores our commitment to recognizing excellence across all parts of our tripartite mission.

Over the next few months, we will complete an implementation plan for this track, as well as modify the Gold Book to reflect this new opportunity. We anticipate rolling out the track in the coming year, and will continue to update you.

Many people have worked hard to bring us to this point. We want to thank everyone involved for their incredible effort, especially the leaders of our clinical track committee, David Eisele, Scott Wright and Cindy Rand.

We are confident this new clinical promotion pathway will recognize, reward and advance the careers of faculty whose primary academic focus, professional effort and time commitment is the delivery and teaching of clinically excellent patient care.
