Promotion and Tenure

Featured opportunity

P&T Peer Mentorship Program

The School of Medicine Office of Faculty Development and the Faculty Advancement & Development Committee are launching the first phase of a pilot mentorship program focused on promotion and tenure. The aim of the program will be to provide a P&T mentor to faculty at the Assistant Professor level who will provide the mentee with advice and assistance through the latter stages of the promotion and tenure process.

If you are an Assistant Professor who is considering going up for promotion this cycle, or an Associate Professor that has been promoted within the last 3 years, we encourage you to learn more and sign up as a prospective mentee or mentor respectively.

Initial matched pairs for those who expressed interest by June 7 have already been made, but we continue to seek mentees and mentors for this program. Moving forward we will match pairs on a rolling basis.

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 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 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.
