Processes & Documents

There are a series of documents and processes that are important to the A&P process that are referenced in the position specific sections of the Academic Affairs web pages. These are grouped here together for easy reference.

The purpose of the Yale University Faculty Handbook is to present in a convenient form the most important University policies and practices as they apply to the faculties of the University.
Outline of timeline for academic appointments, reappointments, and promotions processes
Requests for Faculty Positions (RFP) is a process by which departments communicate their desire for Ladder Faculty hires to the Office of Academic and Professional Development (OAPD) and the Yale School of Medicine.
Following conditional or final approval of an RFP, a Faculty Search can be initiated.
Appointments, reappointments, and promotions are critical ways that the OAPD supports the faculty. Overview information can be seen on the appointments, reappointments, and promotions webpage, and more specific can be seen on the faculty track, rank and position webpage.

Having a common format for CV’s allows those at the university to review in a more efficient and consistent way.

Yale CV Part 2 (CV2) supplements Yale CV1.
Samples of scholarship are often asked for with Appointment and Promotion processes.
Teaching and education are critical to missions of the Yale School of Medicine.

Letters of evaluation are used to assess how faculty candidates are seen by colleagues in their field and the impact they have.

Previously termed Reasons for Promotion in the Yale Formatted CV, the Departmental A&P Narrative should now be submitted as a separate document.

Voting for Appointment and Promotions is an important responsibility of YSM and Departmental A&P Committees.
