Faculty Standards and Criteria

During the past two years, members of the BioMed and Public Health faculty have been working to streamline and rewrite the Standards and Criteria for our faculty ranks and tracks to be consistent.  The definition of what constitutes teaching has been expanded to include mentoring and advising of undergraduates, graduate and medical students, postdoctoral trainees or residents and fellows.  The criterion for research has been expanded to include collaborative and team-based research.
