ClinCAP

COMMITTEE CHARGE

Operating as a standing committee of the Council on Academic Personnel (CAP), ClinCAP meets monthly and reviews personnel actions from faculty in the Health Sciences Series. ClinCAP reviews the following actions in the Health Sciences series: Appointments to Associate or Full; Fourth-Year Appraisal, Promotion to Associate or Full; and Merit Advancement to Step VI. ClinCAP also reviews proposals to change departments, split appointments, and change series to Health Sciences Clinical.

Faculty in the Health Sciences Series have predominant responsibilities in clinical teaching and patient care, and hold compensated positions in the School of Medicine, School of Dentistry or an affiliated or associated hospital or other healthcare facility. For appointment and advancement in this series, an evaluation is made of the candidate's teaching, clinical, and creative or scholarly achievements and service contributions, including service to the University, to professional societies, and to the public. The primary emphasis for some candidates will be on teaching, clinical activities and professional competence, and for other candidates will be on teaching and on scholarly activities as an independent or collaborative investigator. It is expected however, that all Health Sciences Clinical Professor appointees will engage in scholarly or creative activities, which derive from and support their primary responsibilities in clinical teaching and professional and service activities. 

Membership. Four voting faculty, appointed by the Committee on Committees for a three-year term. Members are typically recruited from the pool of faculty that served on CAP.

Interactions with Administration. Council interacts periodically with CAP in the event of an unfavorable outcome, and rarely with the Vice Chancellor for Academic Personnel as needed.

ClinCAP meets monthly from 3:30pm to 5:00pm.
