Clinician Educator Track Options Announced


The University has approved each of two new options for all faculty members currently holding appointments on the Clinician Educator Track (CET). These are titled the Clinician Scholar (pdf) option and the Clinician Educator (pdf) option.


The Clinician Scholar option incorporates all of the parameters that currently apply to all faculty on the CET. For example, promotion for Clinician Scholars includes a requirement for excellence in education and for satisfactory performance in scholarship and in service. Faculty members in this category will have titles that are unchanged from those currently held by all CET faculty.


The Clinician Educator option, in contrast, requires excellence in education and satisfactory performance in service but does not require scholarly activity. This option, in addition, carries with it a modified title with the word Clinical embedded in the suffix, for example, Associate Professor of Clinical Surgery.




Research Faculty


Faculty appointed as non-tenure track with a primary responsibility to develop and conduct research, are governed by the Temple University School of Medicine policy on Research Faculty Members (pdf).
