ALL ACADEMICS AT UC SAN DIEGO
The University invites comments on proposed revisions to Academic Personnel Manual Sections (APM) APM 278, Health Sciences Clinical Professor Series; APM 210-6, Instructions to Review Committees Which Advise on Actions Concerning the Health Sciences Clinical Professor Series; APM 279, Volunteer Clinical Professor Series; and APM 112, Academic Titles.
In addition, the University invites comments on Proposed New Academic Personnel Manual Section 350, Clinical Associate.
Proposed revisions strengthen and refine criteria for appointment and advancement depending on type of academic clinician and differentiate policy language for volunteers (APM 279) and policy for salaried and without salary faculty (APM 278 and APM 210-6). New policy (APM 350) proposes to repurpose the Clinical Associate title, a non-faculty academic title, to be used for 1) without academic salary and paid staff clinicians with no teaching duties, and 2) without academic salary, volunteer appointees employed by University health system network sites and satellite facilities.
The proposed revisions are available at the following website: http://go.ucsd.edu/22abs9A
This is a formal review of the proposed revisions. If you have comments or questions, please contact Kelly Lindlar, director of Academic Policy Development, at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than June 12, 2016.
