About Us

The Office of Faculty Affairs is responsible for the career events for all faculty holding appointments at the University of Michigan Medical School. We work with the departments on all faculty career aspects, from recruitment through retirement.

Our advisory committees review and recommend appointments, promotions, and professorships to the Executive Committee of the Medical School. Faculty Affairs also oversees the Medical School committee elections, as well as other faculty milestones, such as the third-year reviews and sabbaticals.

Our leadership in all three faculty tracks are here to help with any faculty issue that may arise.
