Faculty appointment to the Sidney Kimmel Medical College is a privilege conferred by the Dean as approved by the Board of Trustees. Nominations for appointment to or promotion of the faculty of the Sidney Kimmel Medical College are made to the Dean by the Chairperson of the Department. Faculty seeking appointment or promotion are responsible for submitting completed forms to the Office of Faculty Records once they have obtained the approval of the Department Chairperson. The process for appointment or promotion cannot proceed until all required forms are received. Required forms include a completed application and attestation, curriculum vitae, letters of recommendation, transmittal letter from the Chair and teaching portfolio. These forms must be accompanied by a nomination form which has been signed by the Department Chairperson. New applicants must also complete an Association of American Medical Colleges Faculty Roster Form.
Completed packets are then processed by the Office of Faculty Records. This process includes the verification of credentials. Once the verification process has been completed, the application is forwarded to the Committee on Faculty Appointments and Promotions which makes recommendations regarding faculty rank. The recommendations of the Committee on Faculty Appointments and Promotions are forwarded to the Executive Council and the Board of Trustees for final approval.
