The Emory University School of Medicine format is required by the dean's office for all promotion packets.
Teaching is an essential element of the academic mission of the School of Medicine and of a candidate's credentials for senior faculty appointment or promotion on the tenure, clinical and medical educator and service tracks and sometimes on the research track. All candidates who are proposed for appointment or promotion in the School of Medicine are required to document their teaching activities and evaluations in a teaching portfolio.
The service portfolio provides faculty with the opportunity to highlight their service to patients, students, junior faculty, professional societies, and the Emory community, in addition to emphasizing service on a regional and national level.
Letters of evaluation from both internal and external faculty are required for all senior level appointments and promotions.
