Annual Faculty Assessment (AFA)

Each year members of the faculty who have at least a 0.5 FTE commitment to the School of Medicine complete an Annual Faculty Assessment (AFA). This assessment allows faculty to review their performance and outline specific goals and objectives in areas of teaching, research/scholarship, clinical service and professional/academic service. The process includes both a self-assessment and an assessment from the departmental chair, that when taken together provide a meaningful assessment of the faculty member's productivity and outlines the path forward for promotion and continued productivity. 

Faculty members with a start date July 2, 2016 or after are not required to complete an AFA.​  Faculty with a start date of July 1, 2016 or before are required to complete the AFA.
