Clinical Track


Physician with young patient

The Clinical Track began in 1986 and actively contributes to the clinical and teaching missions of the Medical School, as well as scholarship and administration. The ranks are instructor through professor. The Medical School recognizes that there are multiple pathways for promotion possible within this track, and therefore individuals choose one of five clinical track pathways.  Pathway identification serves to facilitate faculty progress towards promotion and may be identified in the promotion materials to assist in the evaluation of the faculty member.

Although there is no mandated ascension in rank, ascent to senior level titles requires scholarly engagement and productivity, as well as excellence in health care and teaching.

The Clinical Track is unique because faculty members on this track have very different jobs with a varying degree of involvement in clinical care, teaching, research and service.
