Coterminous Faculty

Coterminous appointments are courtesy faculty appointments, requested by a Department Chair and usually at the rank of Instructor, for an individual who holds a training position or a limited term professional staff appointment in the VA or selected clinics outside the McGaw Medical Center. When the controlling position (Fellowship, Chief Residency, etc.) ends, the faculty appointment automatically ends.
