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.
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.
