Faculty Appointments and Promotions

Connect with CMS


We recognize the importance of the work you do for the medical school and the CMS Office of Appointments and Promotions is here to assist you. This website has information we hope you find useful. The policies and other information needed to instruct medical students are included in the main navigation links. This information is updated annually prior to faculty renewal notification. Additional materials can be found under the Clinical Sciences pages and the Foundational Sciences and Humanities pages.

Our Faculty Affairs team is committed to providing a smooth and efficient appointment and promotion process for faculty members.  From onboarding to application submission to promotion planning, we provide personalized assistance, ensuring a seamless transition into the academic family.

If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Nutan Vaidya, Vice Dean of Faculty Affairs and Equity at or Laurie Lonicki, Faculty Appointments and Recognition Coordinator, at
