All assistant professors in the Department of Medicine must undergo a comprehensive Mid-Course Review, typically during the third or fourth year of their assistant professor appointment. Mid-Course Reviews are required by the School of Medicine and must
be completed before an assistant professor can submit for promotion to associate professor or submit a promotion extension request.
- Conversation with senior faculty about career accomplishments and professional goals
- Opportunity to ask questions and receive support from the DOM in preparation for promotion
- Discuss which promotion series is the right fit for your career goals
- Receive actionable and specific recommendations to help progress towards promotion
General Process and Timeline:
