Academic Appointments and Promotion

The promotion and academic side of faculty scholarship and promotion is governed through the traditional academic department structure at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine (UMKC SOM). Academic decisions are made by the Dean of the School of Medicine. Many faculty members are also involved in an academic role at the University of Kansas Medical Center (KUMC).

The Office of Faculty Development assists all faculty members in applying for initial academic appointments and with the promotion process.
