3.1.D. Identification of Candidates, Diversity Considerations

Clinician Educator positions are not normally subject to the posting and search procedures required for other exempt appointments to the University staff.  Candidates currently affiliated with Stanford in some other capacity (e.g., Resident, Postdoctoral Fellow, Instructor) are often identified as potential Clinician Educators; other candidates may emerge as a result of networking conducted at peer institutions.

Occasionally, it may be appropriate for a department to conduct a national search for a Clinician Educator position.  Under such circumstances, the search process should follow the guidelines in the School of Medicine’s Guide to Faculty Searches to the extent possible.  It is recognized that the process may be somewhat different than that required for a new member of the Professoriate; for example, approval from the Office of Academic Affairs to initiate or conclude the search is not required.

In their identification of candidates, departments are expected to keep in mind Stanford’s commitment to diversity and to the recruitment of women and members of minority groups, as well as others who would bring additional dimensions to the University’s research, teaching and clinical missions.
