3.1.B. Definition of Clinician Educator

Clinician Educators are salaried employees of Stanford University, classified as exempt staff and are, in general, subject to and expected to comply with the University’s applicable policies and procedures, including (in general) the employment policies and procedures in Chapter 2 of Stanford University’s Administrative Guide.

While Clinician Educators are classified as staff, and therefore have benefits and privileges that may vary from faculty, many of their responsibilities, which focus on clinical care, teaching, administrative and/or scholarly activities, are similar to those held by members of the Professoriate.  Therefore, as a result of their academic credentials and multifaceted contributions to the School’s educational mission, Clinician Educators are regarded colloquially as faculty and are referred to as such in everyday usage.
