Faculty Affairs Office

Contributed Services Faculty

Historically, FSM granted contributed services faculty appointments, but no longer grants new appointments of this type.  However, those who were initially appointed as contributed services faculty retain those appointments and are eligible for promotion. Contributed services faculty members are appointed to the Clinician-Educator track. They are clinical practitioners who typically are in the private practice of medicine and practice within the McGaw Medical Center. Contributed services faculty members contribute to the academic mission of the medical school without compensation by teaching medical students, residents, and fellows and performing other activities. Departments provide expectations for contributions to the academic mission by contributed services faculty.
