Welcome to the Tufts University School of Medicine (TUSM) Academic Appointments and Promotions! Before you get started here is some quick information.
Unmodified Track: This is appropriate for a clinician on an academic career track in teaching, investigation and/or leadership. Examples would be clerkship and program directors, those conducting scholarly work, those pursuing leadership positions. These candidates do need to select a prototype.
Research Track: Most will not be in a research track, but for those pursuing this track, Please refer to the Tufts Appointments and Promotions Handbook for more details if you feel this fits your experience.
Clinical Track: This is appropriate for the majority of our faculty – those who are primarily clinicians and perform limited academic work. Someone who practices and teaches in clinic or on our inpatient services intermittently would be a good example. With this group, the two senior ranks are Clinical Associate Professor and Clinical Professor. No prototypes to consider – thus, a simpler process.
