Promotion and Tenure

All faculty members must undergo an academic review before an appointment can be extended and before tenure/CAWAR and/or promotion can be granted.

Once you commence your faculty appointment, you are strongly encouraged to start tracking all your clinical scholarly activities and teaching. Please be certain that these activities are being recorded regularly in your CV via the Faculty of Health Sciences Database, as well as in a teaching portfolio and clinical activities portfolio (see guidelines below). This will help ensure you are well positioned for success in your academic review.

Please visit the Faculty of Health Sciences Database (FHS-DB) website for additional information on preparing a CV in McMaster format, and for details on requesting a training session for you and/or your staff. 

Below are a number of documents that will assist you in preparing for your review:
