Harvard Medical School Promotion Criteria

LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

Faculty are encouraged to interpret their progress in a flexible structure or menu that will create an in-depth academic profile. 

Structure of Promotion Criteria: your profile is composed of activities from these groups:

  1. An area of excellence that represents the primary activity and the faculty member's most significant contribution: teaching and educational leadership; clinical expertise and innovation; investigation.
  2. Evaluation for teaching and education: required supporting activity, unless medical education is your primary area of excellence.
  3. Report on other supporting activities outside the area of excellence: clinical expertise; investigation; education of patients and service to the community; administration and institutional service. This component of the profile is optional.

Please check the HMS website for further information on the revised criteria.
