The article and template above are a good resource for faculty who are primarily "clinician educators."  As clinician educators prepare their portfolio, the section on documenting scholarship in education is especially helpful.  This article was a product of the Academic Pediatrics Association (APA) and has been accepted for general use through MedEdPortal of the AAMC.  Dr. Annalise Sorrentino is also a great human resource as she has participated in University-wide activities to assist in portfolio development.  She has also worked directly with Dr. Selden, who wrote some of the seminal descriptions. The APA work is specific for clinical medical faculty. It will likely be most helpful when there is opportunity for those preparing portfolios to discuss their packages with more senior faculty. The template may serve as one that could be used for the Promotion packet.
