Process required for Junior Promotion from Lecturer to Assistant Professor
Note section B, promotion from lecturer to assistant professor. There are no set timelines for this alternative route to promotion, but generally the candidate would need to demonstrate sustained commitment to recognized academic contributions to the Faculty of Medicine over a minimum three year period.
When a faculty member wishes to be considered for promotion from lecturer to assistant professor, they will normally approach their Hospital Division Director and/or their University Department Division Director for support of the promotion. The junior faculty member in most cases must have completed an advanced degree (i.e. Masters or Ph.D). Special circumstances may permit advanced training (in place of advanced degree) such as completion of the Master Teacher Program or several years of specialty fellowship training. Another possibility for promotion recognition without an advanced degree would be creative professional development that is significant and unique within the academic’s field.
The Physician-in-Chief’s office normally submits the full promotion package to the Chair’s administrative office. The documents required are as follows:
Once the above documentation has been submitted to the Chair’s Office, the Chair’s office produces the following
All of this documentation is scanned and sent for the review and approval of the Department Advisor Committee (DAC)
Once DAC has approved, the Chair signs off on the promotion package and it is sent electronically to the Administrator of the Faculty Academic Advisory Committee (FAAC).
FAAC meets at the end of most months to review and approve submissions. Once approved by FAAC, the Dean or their representative signs off on the promotion and notifies the Chair’s Office. The Chair’s Office will then write to the faculty member advising them of their promotion, with copies to the respective PIC and DDD.
