If your letter is from an individual other than your department chair or division chief, please share why you feel this individual is better able to represent the impact of your sustained educational excellence and contributions.
3. Documentation of Teaching for Promotion
The Documentation of Teaching for Promotion (DTP) form is a Feinberg School of Medicine form that ALL faculty must complete when the go up for promotion. If you have already gone up for promotion, submit an updated version. If you have not yet gone up for promotion, please complete this form as part of the application. This means that you can complete the DTP now as part of the FAME application and update it later when submitting your promotions packet.
