Criteria For Reappointment in the Medical Center Line

Criteria For Reappointment or Promotion in the Medical Center Line

General Criteria

The major criteria for appointment, reappointment and promotion for faculty in the MCL shall be excellence in the overall mix of clinical care, clinical teaching, scholarly activity that advances clinical medicine, and institutional service–appropriate to the programmatic need the individual is expected to fulfill. Such programmatic need, including financial viability, should be evaluated and must be established for each appointment, reappointment and promotion.

Reappointment to Associate Professor

Reappointment to the rank of Associate Professor in the MCL will be considered for those who have demonstrated excellence in clinical care, clinical teaching, scholarly activity that advances clinical medicine, and institutional service (if applicable), during their terms of appointment as Associate Professor at Stanford. Written scholarship that advances the field will almost always be required for the rank of Associate Professor. There should be evidence that candidates have attained regional recognition as superior clinicians and clinical teachers. There should be evidence that the candidates will successfully continue to fill the programmatic need for which the appointment is made and to make meritorious contributions to their discipline and to the School.

The term of appointment will be for five years, renewable (based on fulfillment of the criteria and continuing programmatic need), without limit.

Promotion to Associate Professor

Promotion to the rank of Associate Professor in the MCL will be considered for those who have demonstrated excellence in clinical care, clinical teaching, scholarly activity that advances clinical medicine, and institutional service (if applicable) during their terms of appointment as Assistant Professor at Stanford. Written scholarship that advances the field will almost always be required for the rank of Associate Professor. There should be evidence that candidates have attained regional recognition as superior clinicians and clinical teachers. There should be evidence that the candidates will successfully continue to fill the programmatic need for which the appointment is made and to make meritorious contributions to their discipline and to the School.

The term of appointment will be for five years, renewable (based on fulfillment of the criteria and continuing programmatic need), without limit.

Promotion to Professor

Promotion to the rank of Professor in the MCL will be reserved for individuals who have demonstrated exceptional performance in clinical care, clinical teaching and scholarly activity that advances clinical medicine during their terms as Associate Professor at Stanford, and who are widely recognized as leaders in their field. There must be evidence that these individuals have attained national recognition as superior clinicians and clinical teachers, that they have demonstrated continuing excellence and progressive maturation as physicians, teachers and scholars, and that they will successfully continue to fill the programmatic need for which the appointment is made and to make outstanding contributions to their discipline and to the School. They may be recognized nationally as leaders of the health care system or of organizational change and measurement of health care systems. Written scholarship that advances the field will almost always be required for the rank of Professor. The primary emphasis of written contributions should be on peer-reviewed articles, but other written work such as books, chapters, reviews, and commentaries should also be acceptable. The intensity of personal contributions to the advancement of clinical medicine will be tempered by the administrative commitments of those with major ongoing leadership roles within the institution.

Promotion to the rank of Professor in the MCL presumes that the programmatic need and funding have been firmly established. Therefore, promotion to the rank of Professor in the MCL will carry a continuing term of appointment. Termination of this appointment will be permissible when satisfactory performance ceases or in connection with a cessation of or change in programmatic need, including financial viability.
