Job Description Summary
The first item of the Candidate Information section, the Job Description Summary should be completed by the faculty member in conversation with their department chair or division chief, to ensure that the effort allocation accurately represents their current responsibilities.
Due to a change in the Virginia Freedom of Information Act (section 2.2-3705.4(2)), promotion materials are now exempt from FOIA disclosure. Signing the Candidate Waiver is no longer requested of promotion and tenure candidates.
Annual Faculty Performance Review
The annual review is a formative process that not only assesses faculty performance in the three mission areas (clinical, education, research), but also aids in setting goals for the future. From the perspective of department chairs, the annual review is an opportunity to provide guidance, to recognize achievement, and to understand obstacles and challenges.
The SoM Faculty Performance Evaluation Form (updated July 2018) is completed by the department chair and the faculty member during an annual performance review meeting. The department chair, in collaboration with division leadership as appropriate, must provide each faculty member (regardless of rank and tenure status) with a formal annual performance review. The discussion and outcomes of the annual review should be documented, signed by the department chair and faculty member, and a copy should be forwarded to SoM Human Resources.
