Mentoring Towards Promotion

The School of Medicine provides faculty with numerous online resources regarding Promotion and Tenure (P&T).  This section provides an abridged version of the documents found online so that a faculty member can see at a glance the expectations detailed in the official SOM guidelines document for promotion from their current Rank and Track. This abridged version is offered as a helpful tool for planning ahead, however when a faculty member is in the process of submitting their information and going up for promotion (with or without tenure), it is imperative that the official SOM Guidelines document, as well as the SOM Promotion and Tenure website are followed closely as they are the definitive resources.

Begin by Understanding Ranks & Tracks


It is imperative that faculty members review the official KU School of Medicine Guidelines for Promotion and Tenure, as well as the Promotion and Tenure website which are the definitive resources for promotion and tenure. Questions and suggestions regarding this site should be directed to Dianne Durham, PhD, Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs and Faculty Development, Professor of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery.
