Introduction to Academic Appointments at the Faculty of Medicine
One of the important responsibilities of the University of Ottawa’s Faculty of Medicine is to appoint its clinical faculty members. Clinical faculty are responsible to both the University and a relevant site, and the relationship between University and hospital governance from the perspective of the individual faculty member has not always been clear. The University recognizes that the inherent complexity surrounding issues of governance and finances with respect to clinical faculty has contributed to a long-standing University policy vacuum in this area. The Relationship Committee that was mandated to assess and address issues rooted in the relationship between the Faculty of Medicine and its clinical faculty members is pleased to present a new Procedures Manual for Academic Appointment in the University of Ottawa’s Faculty of Medicine based on new appointments principles.
