Faculty Affairs

A dozen faculty members are seeking promotion.

By: Guy Benrubi, M.D., FACOG

Four University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville faculty members are preparing packets for promotion to professor and eight for promotion to associate professor. One is on the tenure track and 11 are on the mission track.

Keep in mind that the dean’s office has created a robust mentoring program for faculty who wish to seek promotion. The program results in stronger packets. The same process can also be used by any faculty member who desires mentoring on academic development. Unfortunately, only a few take advantage of the program.

The best time to access the mentoring program is two to three years prior to anticipated application for promotion. For more information, contact Lynn Weathers in the dean’s office at lynn.weathers@jax.ufl.edu.
