Timeline for A&P Processes

Overview

The below outline delineates the timeline for academic appointments, promotions, reappointments. Please note the following:
  • Some departments have earlier internal deadlines and/or intermediary steps to facilitate faculty reviews and processing steps.
  • All are encouraged to keep upcoming academic process dates in mind and to be proactive whenever possible.
  • Specifics of what is needed for each track, rank and position are delineated on the Faculty Tracks, Ranks, and Positions webpages.

New appointments are addressed on a rolling basis, and should have paperwork submitted as expeditiously as possible once offer letters are executed (note that the YSM A&P Committees do not regularly meet over the summer, so paperwork submitted during that timeframe will not be reviewed until the fall). Initial appointments only can be retroactive to initial hire/start date.

The below timeline is for all reappointments and promotions of faculty in their primary department. TIMELINE VIDEO
