P&T Peer Mentorship Program

Looking for mentorship and guidance as you prepare your promotion packet for January? The P&T Peer Mentorship Program can provide Assistant Professors with a P&T focused mentor who will offer advice and assistance through the latter stages of the promotion and tenure process. SoM faculty who are planning to apply for promotion to Associate Professor in Jan. 2024 should considering signing up now. Learn more using the link above.

Promotion and tenure can seem daunting. To help in this process, the School of Medicine Faculty Affairs team has put together, and maintains, a valuable resource page to help guide you through the process.

Promotion and Tenure

This Promotion and Tenure faculty page has a wealth of resources to help you understand the P&T process as well as tips from colleagues to help with the process. In addition to finding key information about P&T policies, criteria and procedures, you can expect to find:

  • Information on Updating your CV in the era of COVID-19
  • An Annotated Guide to the SoM CV
  • A presentation on Assessing Faculty Readiness for Promotion
  • Guide to Writing Personal Statements
  • OHSU's Educator's Portfolio Guidelines
  • A link to a list of Departmental Promotion and Tenure Committee Chairs
  • As well as many other guides, templates and reference documents designed to help you through the P&T process.

Make sure to check back often for updated resources and to stay informed of dates for application openings or other key deadlines.
