Educator Resources

The University of Colorado School of Medicine places a high value on professionalism and institutional citizenship. As outlined in the Rules of the School of Medicine, members of the faculty are expected to demonstrate a sincere interest in the welfare of students, residents, patients, and colleagues and to participate actively in departmental meetings, conferences, teaching exercises and other programs. Faculty members are also expected to serve as models of professionalism, exhibiting a commitment to service, honesty, lifelong learning, and open and respectful communication. These attributes and behaviors are critical to the missions of the School of Medicine and will be considered during annual performance, promotion, tenure, and post-tenure reviews.

All faculty members with teaching responsibilities are expected to review relevant teaching expectations, the Teacher-Learner Agreement, which outlines the guiding principles for ensuring a positive climate for learning. This Agreement, along with school’s curriculum objectives, the student supervision policy, Mistreatment and the Learning Environment website and other important resources related to faculty teaching obligations are available at: Teaching & Learning Policies and Guidelines .
