Senior Promotion to Associate and Full Professor

Academic promotion within the University is one of the most important ways in which a University can recognize the excellence of its faculty in terms of teaching, research, creative professional activity (CPA) and other professional activities, both within and outside the University.

The process towards a successful promotion involves our department, Temerty Faculty of Medicine, the Dean, and the University President. Candidates for senior promotion to the rank of Associate Professor or Professor are first reviewed by the Departmental Promotions Committee (DPC). Candidates recommended for promotion by our DPC are then reviewed by the Decanal Promotions Committee which makes its recommendations to the Dean. The Dean forwards recommendations to the University Vice-President and Provost and, ultimately, the University President. If approved by the University, the promotions are effective on July 1st of the same year.

Please review our Promotion Guidelines and Documentation Requirements pages.

More information can be found on the Temerty Faculty of Medicine's Senior Promotions webpage.
