Upon retirement, any member of the faculty who has given exemplary service to the School and/or continues to be active in the affairs of the School of Medicine may be allowed to retain his or her title with the description of "Emeritus
" or "Emerita
," respectively. The recommendation for this status can originate with the appropriate department chairperson, who should forward a letter detailing the faculty member's accomplishments during his or her career, a current CV, and a Faculty Recommendation Form (FRF) to the Office of Faculty Affairs. The Office of Faculty Affairs will then forward the recommendation to the SOM Executive Committee. If approved, the recommendation will then be forwarded to the Chancellor of the Anschutz Medical Campus for final approval. The entire process generally takes 1-2 months for completion.
