Joint Appointments

The College of Medicine strongly encourages collaboration among its faculty and formally recognizes ongoing efforts by granting secondary faculty appointments in departments where such arrangements exist. Joint appointments should be requested by the faculty member and require the approval of the heads of both the primary and secondary department and review by the Senior Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs.

Faculty members seeking joint appointments should submit a letter describing their collaborations within the secondary department or complete the Request for a Joint Faculty Appointment Form.

The letter or form plus a current CV should be submitted to the primary Deparmtnent P&T Coordinator who will submit to the secondary department chairs for approval, after which the packet is submitted to the Office of Faculty Affairs for final review.
