Clinical Assistant Professor, Clinical Associate Professor, and Clinical Professor Appointment policies governed by: University of Wisconsin–Madison Academic Staff Policies and Procedures (ASPP) and this policy statement.
CT track appointments are available for science educators with an appointment in the Pharmaceutical Sciences Division of the School of Pharmacy whose responsibilities lie primarily in teaching, with the expectation for some productivity in scholarly activity to support promotion. In addition, individuals holding a CT track appointment are expected to con tribute to the service mission/responsibilities of the school.
A candidate for appointment at the rank of Clinical Assistant Professor should hold a professional or doctoral degree. The candidate should provide evidence that (s)he is a competent teacher capable of meeting teaching responsibilities in the undergraduate and/or PharmD teaching missions of the division, as appropriate. In addition, appointment to Clinical Assistant Professor requires some demonstration of scholarly activity, but not to the level expected of a CHS or tenure track appointment.
CT track appointments require Executive Committee approval. For full time School of Pharmacy faculty, initial appointments as Clinical Assistant Professor are normally for up to three years, with renewal every year thereafter. Any changes in the terms of the original appointment will be stated in the reappointment letter. Initial appointments for full time Clinical Associate Professor and Clinical Professor are normally for up to five years, with renewal every year thereafter.
Letters of Appointment:
Each initial letter of appointment must include a statement that carefully delineates the conditions and expectations of the appointment. Each letter must include the appointment period.
A copy of this policy statement must be provided to the candidate with the initial letter of appointment.
Calculation of Probationary Period:
The probationary period for persons appointed ≥ 50% within the School of Pharmacy is determined by the appointment level. Persons at a 100% appointment level are expected to be reviewed for promotion in their sixth year. Persons at a 50% appointment level are expected to be reviewed for promotion in their twelfth year. There is no promotion requirement for CT track faculty with less than a 50% appointment with the School of Pharmacy. It is expected that persons with greater than or equal to a 50% FTE appointment promoted to the rank of Clinical Associate Professor will be recommended for indefinite appointment.
A Clinical Assistant Professor who has not been promoted to Clinical Associate Professor by the end of the probationary period described above must be given a one-year not ice of non – renewal of his/her appointment.
A Mentorship Committee will be appointed by the Dean for each CT faculty member for persons with 350% FTE appointment within 3 months of the faculty member’s arrival. This committee will include at least one tenured faculty member. Although the membership of the Mentorship Committee is not expected to change over time, its composition can be changed at any time by the Dean. It is acceptable and appropriate for the mentored CT faculty member to be permitted to petition the Dean for modification of the committee’s membership.
