From Chapter 2, SoM Faculty Handbook:

In the School of Medicine, a courtesy appointment is defined as one in which the faculty member often makes a substantial contribution to departments other than their own, but in ways less formal than would justify a joint or secondary appointment.  It is permissible for a faculty member to hold more than one courtesy appointment.  There is usually no commitment of salary, space, research or other support involved in a courtesy appointment.

From Chapter 2, SoM Faculty Handbook:

In the School of Medicine, a secondary appointment is defined as an arrangement whereby the faculty member holds a primary appointment, as well as a secondary appointment, in departments within the School of Medicine.  (Occasionally, a faculty member whose primary appointment is in another school may have a secondary appointment in a School of Medicine department.)  It is permissible for a faculty member to hold more than one secondary appointment.  A secondary appointment acknowledges the faculty member’s active participation in a department’s research, educational and/or clinical activities, and the title carries certain responsibilities and bestows certain privileges as outlined below.  Normally, all resources (e.g., billet, salary, research support) are provided by the faculty member’s primary department.

From Chapter 2, SoM Faculty Handbook:

In the School of Medicine, faculty with joint appointments hold half of their appointment in a department within the School of Medicine and the other half of their appointment in a department affiliated with one of Stanford’s other six schools.  Under this arrangement, one department is designated as “primary” and the other as “secondary.”  Normally, both departments split the salary.  The faculty member is assigned two billet (position) numbers, one in each unit.
