Annual and Pre-Tenure Reviews

Annual Performance Review

Department chairs are required to provide each full-time faculty member in their department with a written summary of their annual performance review. Basic science departments and the clinical science departments based at University Hospitals use a common electronic website or a Word document of the same format for the performance review. Faculty at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine and the MetroHealth System are evaluated using their hospital's form.

Pre-Tenure Review

Tenure track faculty members in their third and sixth pre-tenure years must be evaluated by their department's Committee on Appointments, Promotions, and Tenure (DCAPT). These evaluations shall address the faculty member's:

  • knowledge of academic field and commitment to continuing development of this competence
  • dedication to effective teaching
  • commitment to a continuing program of research or other advanced creative activity
  • willingness to assume a fair share of university administrative and service tasks.

Reviews take place in the spring of the appropriate year and are managed by the Faculty Affairs Office.
