3.1.I. Offer Letters
It is the responsibility of the department chair to ensure that a candidate for appointment as a Clinician Educator is informed in writing of, and agrees to, the terms and conditions of his or her proposed appointment before hire. The approved offer letter template is available in the Toolbox on the Office of Academic Affairs’ website, http://med.stanford.edu/academicaffairs/tools/letter-templates.html. Oral commitments are not enforceable until they are reduced to writing and reviewed and approved as required.
An offer letter addendum is required if there are changes to a Clinician Educator’s percent time of appointment, assigned role and responsibilities, and/or compensation other than an increase occurring as a midyear salary adjustment or as part of the annual salary setting process. The approved addendum template is also available in the Toolbox on the Office of Academic Affairs website.
All offers are contingent upon final review and approval by the School of Medicine.
