New Appointments


Clinical faculty hold staff appointments at university-affiliated hospitals.
Full-Time Clinical faculty members are typically staff at one of our fully-affiliated hospitals, while Adjunct Clinical faculty members hold hospital appointments at one of our community-affiliated hospitals. All clinical (MD) academic appointments are governed by the Policy for Clinical Faculty and Procedures Manual for the Policy for Clinical Faculty, available on the Temerty Faculty of Medicine site 

Status-only faculty typically hold non-clinical roles at a university-affiliated hospital or relevant research institute (for example, scientists or other non-clinicians). Their job descriptions are primarily academic (research and teaching). More information about our non-clinical appointment categories can be found on the Temerty Faculty of Medicine site

Academic Position Descriptions

All Clinical appointments (Full-Time, Part-Time, and Adjunct) require an academic position description, which is a written and explicit description of the academic work to be undertaken that is agreed to by the clinical faculty member, the Department Chair, and the relevant Radiologist-in-Chief (or hospital administration where applicable). The academic position description is appropriate for the individual’s appointment circumstances and may be updated from time to time. 

Clinician Teacher

Teaching focused, mainly in the context of clinical teaching but also including rounds, seminars, and/or continuing medical education. Most of our faculty members are Clinician Teachers.

Clinician Investigator

Most academic contributions are in research.

Clinician Administrator

Clinician in a leadership position that has academic impact (e.g. Radiologists-in-Chief).

Clinician in Quality & Innovation

Academic activities are centred on QI work; this may include teaching or creative professional activity with a QI-focus.

Clinician Scientist

A very high percentage of academic time is spent on research, often equivalent to or more than clinical activities.
