How do I apply for an academic promotion?

Promotion is one way the School of Medicine recognizes and rewards a faculty member for contributing to the education of medical students and engaging in scholarship and service. Continued employment requires faculty to maintain high professional competence and accomplishment, meeting their professional obligations and assignments on a consistent basis. 

In the normal course of events, faculty will be eligible for promotion approximately every 5-7 years they are in a given rank. Exceptional candidates may be eligible for promotion in a compressed time frame. Promotions progress from Assistant Professor to Associate Professor and then to Full Professor.

Please review the Appointments and Promotion Policies and Procedures for more details.
