Department of Medicine Reappointment, Promotions, and Tenure Committee

The Reappointment, Promotions, and Tenure Committee is composed of 3 subcommittees: The Tenure Pathway and Promotions Subcommittee, The Clinical Scholar Evaluation and Reappointment Subcommittee, and The Volunteer Pathway Reappointment Subcommittee.  Each are composed of selected faculty from the divisions of the Department of Medicine.  All three subcommittees participate in the Spring RPT cycle which addresses faculty reappointments, while the Tenure Pathway subcommittee also meets for the Fall RPT cycle as well to evaluate faculty going up for promotion.

Committee Mission:

The mission of the Department of Medicine Tenure Pathway and Promotions Subcommittee is to provide support to the RPT Chair in the preparation of summary information required for reappointment and promotion of Department of Medicine faculty members on the Tenure Track Pathway, and for promotion dossiers of faculty on all promotion tracks. The Committee is charged with reviewing the content of dossiers, assembled by each faculty member under consideration and corresponding unit director, and with writing summaries that highlight accomplishments in the areas of teaching, research and scholarship, and service to the institution and beyond. Each summary will also serve to generate constructive feedback to the faculty member under consideration, so that the goals for future promotion can be achieved. The Subcommittee will meet at least once during the faculty review cycle to finalize the summaries, which will then be forwarded by the Subcommittee Chair to the RPT Committee Chair.
