Physician-Educator Track 2 applies to all professorial level faculty members holding an MD degree and who have primary appointment in the clinical departments. Upon the recommendation of the Department Chairperson and approval of the Dean, a faculty member who holds a doctoral degree other than MD (PhD, DMD, or other) can be appointed into this track with a primary appointment in a clinical department if he/she has a major portion of the assigned duties in the area of patient care or clinical service, such as Clinical Psychology, Laboratory Medicine, or others. Faculty members in the Physician-Educator Track are expected to devote at least 80% of their total effort to assigned duties in the combined areas of teaching and clinical service. The title of the rank will be modified, e.g. Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine.
