Johns Hopkins Faculty Gold Book


View Gold Book 2017

The Gold Book undergoes periodic revision that reflect changes in academic medicine and the needs of the faculty and the School of Medicine. In 2005 the Committee on the Clinician Educator together with the Medical School Council (now Faculty Senate) updated the Gold Book to explicitly include scholarship in education as a criteria for promotion. In addition, contract periods beyond 6 years at Assistant and Associate Professor were made options for faculty to provide adequate time to advance their scholarship for promotion. These modifications do not represent radical changes for promotion or for contract periods but align the Gold Book with practices at the School of Medicine over the last several years. The 2005 Gold Book changes provided the faculty with more flexibility to achieve their professional goals. The changes in this 2017 Gold Book clarify the Gold Book guaranteed salary as the Part A Salary. It also simplifies the years at rank for Assistant & Associate Professor.

All changes were approved by the Faculty Senate and the Advisory Board of the Medical School.
