Appointment, Promotion & Tenure
Appointment, promotion and tenure at McGovern Medical School is overseen by the Faculty Appointments, Promotions and Tenure Committee (FAPTC). Policies and procedures governing these activities are described in the Guidelines (see link below). Promotion and tenure considerations initiate with the submission of a packet September 1st. Successful actions take effect on September 1st of the following year.
We offer a formal review of faculty readiness for promotion/tenure through the Individual Promotion Plan. Contact Tina Clark (713) 500-5103 to arrange an appointment with Dr. Kevin Morano.
Additional information on policies relevant to faculty appointment, promotion and tenure can be found within the UTHealth Handbook of Operating Procedures:
