Appointment, promotion and tenure at the 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.
Additional information on policies relevant to faculty appointment, promotion and tenure can be found within the UTHealth Handbook of Operating Procedures:
Each spring the Office of Faculty Affairs holds Promotion and Tenure Seminars to prepare faculty for packet submission as well as to provide career guidance.
