Clinical Faculty members are specifically qualified with respect to practical knowledge and experience in their disciplines. This practical perspective often defines their teaching responsibilities, which usually occupy the majority of their workloads and may address practical issues or consist of pursuing and/or supervising work with students in a clinical or professional setting.
The evaluation and promotion of Clinical Faculty are governed by Baylor University Personnel Policy (BU-PP) 719. The university Clinical Faculty Procedures document is not a BU-PP. These procedures describe the process for review of clinical faculty in the third year, as well as at the point of application for promotion to Clinical Associate Professor and Clinical Professor. These instructions should be used by department chairs each year to manage the review process of clinical faculty.
