Lecturers are not appointed often in the School of Medicine. They are:
- individuals who perform a significant amount of the regular instruction with continuing programmatic need in departments and programs;
- persons of special expertise or scholarly distinction either in the local community or on the nonteaching University staff who are asked on an occasional basis to give a course or part of a course in their special fields;
- individuals who are employed to meet specific departmental needs created by faculty leaves or unanticipated student load.
The title of Senior Lecturer is associated with a demonstrably higher level of responsibility and teaching excellence than that of a Lecturer, rather than with seniority or longevity.
Appointing and Reappointing Lecturers and Senior Lecturers
To appoint, reappoint or promote a Lecturer or to appoint or reappoint a Senior Lecturer, submit the required documentation via FASA.
Note: from the School of Medicine Faculty Handbook: " Promotion to the rank of Senior Lecturer is possible when the needs of the program meet the criteria as determined by a review committee of up to six members, at least three of whom are Academic Council members."
