6.1.B. Academic Qualifications
The postdoctoral training of Adjunct Clinical Faculty members should be sufficient to qualify them as specialists or certified practitioners in the field of medicine represented by the department in which they are to hold an appointment. Certification by a specialty or other certifying board is not required for initial appointment as Adjunct Clinical Instructor, but the background of the candidate should be such that he or she is eligible for examination by such a board. It is normally expected that certification by a specialty or other certifying board should have been achieved before appointment or promotion to the rank of Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor or above.
