3.1.C. Programmatic Need, Position and Resource Allocation

Programmatic need, including financial viability, must be evaluated and established for each Clinician Educator appointment, reappointment and promotion.

Unlike the Professoriate, which is subject to a billet cap, there is no formal limit on the number of Clinician Educator positions in the School; rather, the number of positions is governed by a department’s programmatic need and funding capacity, and by School approval.  Each regular (benefits-eligible) Clinician Educator position is assigned a unique position number for purposes of recordkeeping and reporting.  Clinician Educators employed in contingent or casual capacity are assigned to shared position numbers.

In addition to salaries, other resources provided to Clinician Educators may include some of the following:  administrative supplement, participation in departmental incentive plans, and moving expenses.
