Reappointment Process

Clinical Faculty appointments are for finite terms. Reappointment for a further term is dependent on the information presented in succeeding Annual Report Forms. To maintain a clinical faculty appointment, individuals above the rank of Clinical Instructor must provide 50 hours of UBC related teaching, administration, research or committee work over a two year cycle. This commitment can involve didactic teaching, bedside clinical teaching, administrative committee work or research. Those individuals not working at a teaching site with medical students or residents can accumulate 25 hours per year by participating in PBL, Clinical Skills teaching, OSCE or MCC examinations.

New in 2013  –  Teaching Dossier Required for Reappointment under the following condition:

If your initial faculty appointment at UBC was at the rank of Clinical Assistant Professor or higher, the Department now requires that you provide a formal Teaching Dossier along with your current CV and annual reports in order to be reappointed at your current rank. This is to ensure that your teaching has been assessed to the same degree as individuals who progress to that rank through the promotion process. It therefore ensures a consistency of review for all faculty members at these ranks, whether they attain the rank through initial appointment or through promotion.

The Faculty of Medicine’s Guidelines for a formal Teaching Dossier are found here.
