Faculty of Medicine Handbook

We are pleased to share with you the Faculty of Medicine Governance, Appointment and Promotion Handbook. The processes by which faculty are hired, appointed and rewarded and the policies by which we are governed as a community are central to the success of the Faculty of Medicine. This Handbook reflects the current practices and guidelines for Harvard Medical School and Harvard School of Dental Medicine, including the Faculty of Medicine By-Laws which were initially approved in 2012. By necessity, this document is a work in progress, as we continuously endeavor to ensure that we are optimally efficient, fair and transparent in meeting the needs of our community. Your comments and questions are welcome.
