About Promotion and Tenure

It is important for faculty to understand the academic advancement timeline for the promotion and tenure process. In addition, the preparation of the dossier must be planned carefully to be submitted and reviewed around the IUSM promotion and tenure schedule. Further, it is prudent to review the explicit criteria for advancement in each distinct academic rank and academic track.

Nominations for promotion ordinarily will come from the department chair or regional center director, but may be instituted by the candidate or any other faculty member of the School of Medicine. All nominations will be forwarded to the School of Medicine Faculty Promotions Committee with a recommendation by the department chair or regional center director and by the department or center Promotion Committee (Primary committee).
