As you will recall, last winter we carried out an integrative strategic planning process which involved department-wide consultation on a wide range of issues and priorities. During this time, many clinical faculty members expressed a desire for more efficient and streamlined processes for appointment, reappointment, and promotion. Thus, in response to this feedback and as part of a broader initiative toward improved efficiency in our administrative and HR processes, we have taken steps create a new streamlined Clinical Faculty Annual Report Form.
The new report is now in an online format, eliminating the need to submit paper or electronic copies by mail, email or fax. The form no longer requires you to re-enter detailed undergraduate or Department-paid postgraduate teaching hours, as this information will now be pulled from the Teaching Tracking and Payment System (TTPS) and other payment records. However, the form still allows any teaching hours or activities not paid by the UBC Department of Psychiatry, or other activities not captured in the questions, to be entered or uploaded.
We ask that you please complete and submit the online form by Wednesday March 31, 2021 (11:59pm PST). As well, we welcome any suggestions you might have on improving the report form, and therefore encourage you to provide your feedback in the survey at the end of the form. Should you have any questions or concerns, or have any issues completing or submitting the online form, please don’t hesitate to contact Vicky Yau, Director of Administration, at email@example.com.
