Faculty Appointments in Family Medicine at USU

The faculty appointment and promotion process can be mystifying. Our goal is to remove barriers by giving examples, checklists and mentorship opportunities for all Family Medicine Faculty around the country. In general terms, all Board-Certified Family Physicians who teach either USUHS medical students or military residents are probably eligible for appointment at the level of Assistant Professor. Fellows in any fellowship are eligible to be appointed as Instructor. Promotion to higher ranks is dependent on demonstrated excellence in teaching, scholarship and service. This page has important documents for understanding the background of academic appointments here at USUHS.
