IV. Criteria for Establishing Health Programs Faculty Positions

The establishment of Health Programs faculty positions requires the following documentation:

a.  A need for a clinician faculty position exists in a department or other unit associated with the medical and nursing colleges.

b. Sources(s) of funding to support the position through discretionary, variable and non‐continuing funds, grants, and/or practice revenues. HP faculty may temporarily be supported on general funds as needed to compensate for service for which the University is obligated to the individual.

c. A significant portion of the responsibilities of the position are normally in clinical activities such as patient care, clinical and pre-clinical teaching, scholarship and institutional service.

Health Programs Faculty positions are established on the recommendation of the appropriate academic unit administrator and approved by the dean or separately reporting director.
