Departmental Promotions and Tenure for 2012

Tenure-Promotions

The UAB Department of Psychiatry promotion and tenure decisions have been finalized for the year. Four members of our faculty received well-deserved recognition. Tolulope Aduroja, M.D., Ph.D., has been promoted to Associate Professor. Robert McCullumsmith, M.D., Ph.D., has been promoted to Associate Professor and received the award of tenure. Karen Cropsey, Psy. D., and Adrienne Lahti, M.D., both received the award of tenure.

Our Departmental Appointment, Promotion, and Tenure committee is chaired by Nathan Smith, M.D., Professor, and Vice Chairman for the Department of Psychiatry, and is staffed by Suzanne Allen, assistant to the Vice Chair for Education and Training.

It is a complex task to review candidates and to prepare and assemble the packages that are submitted to the School of Medicine and the University. Our Appointment, Promotion, and Tenure committee has done an excellent job of finalizing their decisions, and the department would like to thank everyone on the committee for their time and effort.
