The Department of Anesthesiology offers three pathways for faculty: Clinician Clinician, Clinician Educator and Clinician Scientist. Entry into any of these three pathways will normally be at the Acting Assistant Professor Level. Faculty positions at the Acting level are annual appointments, subject to annual renewal for a maximum of four years.
The total number of Clinician Clinician faculty whose primary assignment is in core facilities (defined as the University of Washington Medical Center (UWMC), UWMC/Roosevelt, Harborview Medical Center, Children's Medical Center and Veterans' Affairs Medical Center) is limited by School of Medicine policy to 25% of the total number of regular departmental faculty.
Promotion within any pathway will be based on evidence of continued professional development in the focus area(s) of that pathway. Promotion is generally warranted on the basis of regional or national recognition for achievement in clinical care, teaching, administration and research.
This pathway has a predominant emphasis upon the provision of clinical care and clinical teaching in the clinical environment, without the requirement of documenting scholarly activity by authoring scholarly works.
