Helpful Hints for Junior Faculty

  1. Maintain Your CV – Keep it up-to-date in the required format. Standard CV Template.

  2. Create Portfolios – Begin immediately, as soon as you are “on board”, to create and maintain portfolios for teaching, research and service. Document concurrently everything that you do – all activities. The Appointments, Promotions, and Tenure (APT) “package” should be built over several years. See SOM Promotion/Tenure Instructions.

  3. Developing your Clinical Portfolio video presentation. (9/28/2018)

  4. Critique APT Package – Have your APT “package” critiqued by several faculty members prior to submitting to the Department of Pediatrics Appointment, Promotion and Tenure Committee and incorporate changes as needed.

  5. Internal Resources - The Office of Faculty Development is available to assist you with your CV, career development, and/or your APT Package. The internal APTC members are also available to help.
