There are several committees critical to the Appointments and Promotions functions of the OAPD.

Senior Appointments & Promotions Committee reviews appointments and promotions to professor in all ladder tracks and to associate professor with tenure at the Yale School of Medicine (other than those reviewed by TACBS). Those of the Yale School of Public Health are only reviewed for the Clinician-Educator and Clinical Tracks.

Term Appointment & Promotions Committee reviews appointments and promotions to associate professor with term in all ladder tracks except the Clinical Track at the Yale School of Medicine. Those of the Yale School of Public Health are only reviewed for the Clinician-Educator Track.

Term (Clinical Track) Appointment & Promotions Committee reviews appointments and promotions to associate professor with term in the Clinical Track at the Yale School of Medicine and Yale School of Public Health.

Tenure & Appointments Committee in the Biologic Sciences (TACBS) Committee reviews appointments and promotions to tenure for the basic science and bridge departments at the Yale School of Medicine. These include Cell Biology, Cellular & Molecular Physiology, Comparative Medicine, Immunobiology, Microbial Pathogenesis, Molecular Biophysics & Biochemistry, Neuroscience, Pharmacology, Genetics, and Pathology.

These Appointment and Promotions Committees review and vote on the Appointments and Promotion of those at the School of Medicine. Members attend approximately two hour-and-a-half meetings a month to discuss candidates that are pre-reviewed by committee members. Candidates for these committees

  • Must be full professors
  • Recommended to have experience with Appointments and Promotions reviews within their departments
  • Likely to be endorsed by their departments for these roles
