Regular Faculty Tracks
The faculty career tracks at the Feinberg School of Medicine were updated in 2010/2011. The career tracks for regular faculty are as follows:
- Investigator track
tenure eligible with a defined probationary period and tenured faculty
- Clinician-Educator track
generally non-tenure eligible but tenure possible for highly accomplished faculty with clinical responsibilities at the time of promotion to professor.
- Health System Clinician track
Research faculty appointments are intended to increase the quality and productivity of research programs at the Feinberg School of Medicine by permitting appointment of scholars to the faculty on a non-tenure basis in order to participate in and cooperate with the research efforts of faculty with tenure-track appointments. Individuals appointed as research faculty should hold terminal degrees and intend to concentrate on research. They are not subject to teaching responsibilities, though they may participate in the training of students in an area of expertise in which they are uniquely qualified. They are not eligible for tenure and cannot participate in the governance of the University. Research faculty do not normally move to positions on the tenure-track faculty, and may do so only in conjunction with a national search.
