Office of Faculty Affairs

The Office of Faculty Affairs is responsible for issues relating to the COM faculty including recruitment, orientation, faculty development, the development and interpretation of policies and procedures for promotion and tenure, supporting the work of the COM Academic Appointments, Promotion and Tenure Committee (CAPT), grievance and appeal procedures, annual faculty performance evaluation, annual reappointment letters, and faculty retention.

To the right are links to College of Medicine By-Laws and the UTHSC Faculty Handbook. These documents give the policies of COM and UTHSC under which all of COM works.

For a better understanding of COM promotion and tenure, look at Insider’s Guide to Promotion in the UTHSC College of Medicine. It gives an overview, FAQs, and describes the "metrics" in detail.

To the left are links to a host of forms needed by departmental Business Managers and Chairs in order to recruit, appoint, promote, and evaluate faculty.

Call us if you have questions. If we don't know the answer, we'll know who to ask.
