Tenure and Promotion

The University of Florida College of Medicine Executive Committee approved the proposed tenure and promotion guidelines for the UF College of Medicine June 21, 2012. These guidelines may be used by faculty candidates for promotion and/or tenure beginning immediately. For the next 24 months faculty candidates may select either the previous College of Medicine guidelines or the newly approved guidelines, after which only the new guidelines will be applicable. The mechanism to indicate by which guidelines an individual faculty member has decided to be evaluated is to paste the appropriate sections of the selected guidelines directly into his/her promotion/tenure packet (in section 8). Both guidelines are posted on the faculty affairs website.

Please be aware that candidates using the new guidelines are required to submit clinical or educational portfolios as appropriate for the faculty member’s assignments. However, all faculty candidates with a substantial clinical or educational mission assignment are encouraged to submit the respective portfolio(s), even if using the old guidelines for evaluation. The formats for the educational and clinical portfolios are provided in the tenure and promotion handbook.

Other important information and packet instructions are included in the tenure and promotion handbook. All faculty members planning to apply for promotion and/or tenure are strongly encouraged to review the information in the handbook.

For questions or more information, please email Marian Limacher, MD, Senior Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs and Professional Development or call (352) 294-5343.
