3.4.F. Review by the Office of Academic Affairs

The appointment, reappointment or promotion file is submitted by the department chair to the Office of Academic Affairs for review by the Vice Dean of the School of Medicine (or a designate). The Vice Dean may, in their judgment, make a negative decision on the file or take such other action as deemed appropriate, including request additional information or remand the action to the department.

After having received such review by the Office of Academic Affairs and after any suggested revisions have been incorporated or other issues have been resolved, the file is then submitted to Academic Affairs for distribution to the appropriate Clinician Educator Appointments and Promotions Committee.  The Committee considers all actions with the exception of Clinical Instructor appointments and reappointments, which are approved by the Vice Dean for Academic Affairs (or their designee).
