3.4.G. The Clinician Educator Appointments and Promotions Committee and Vice Dean
The School of Medicine Clinician Educator Appointments and Promotions Committees are standing committees, advisory to the Vice Dean of the School of Medicine, and appointed to review and assess the academic credentials of Clinical Assistant Professors, Clinical Associate Professors and Clinical Professors, in the Clinician Educator line. For information regarding the committees and procedures, please visit: http://med.stanford.edu/academicaffairs/faculty/promotion-reappointment/decision-makers.html#ce-roles.
Upon receipt of a recommendation (whether positive or negative) from the Clinician Educator Appointments and Promotions Committee, the Vice Dean of the School of Medicine, in his or her judgment and discretion, will make his or her decision as whether to approve or overturn a positive recommendation, approve or overturn a negative recommendation, remand the file with further instructions, or take such other action as in his or her judgment is deemed appropriate.
The Vice Dean’s decisions on all actions are provided to the department. It is the responsibility of departments to inform Clinician Educators of all decisions and changes in their terms of appointment resulting from reappointments.Reconsideration of a negative decision by the Vice Dean will occur only if the department provides convincing evidence that new and material information bearing on the case exists, such as information that could not have been available in the original evaluation. Reconsiderations are rare and may be avoided by consultation between the department chair and the Vice Dean at appropriate intervals in the process.
