Practice Track – Supporting Documents
The Practice Track is designed for physicians who devote at least 90 percent of their effort to clinical activities. They are expected to excel in the practice of clinical medicine, but are not expected to have a lengthy record of research, publications/presentations, teaching or other scholarly achievement.
Faculty appointed to the new track may include:
- Current campus-based faculty who function predominantly (90 percent) as clinical practitioners
- Community-based physicians recruited as full-time, campus-based faculty
- Physician leaders of off-campus practices owned by Mount Sinai.
Key features of the Practice Track:
- Titles – A "practice" modifier will be part of all titles in this track, e.g., Associate Professor of the Practice of Medicine.
- Terms of appointment – Range from one to five years depending on rank and circumstances
- Tenure – Not offered at any rank in this track.
- Basic expectations – Candidates must have a broad range of accomplishments related to excellence in quality of care, patient safety, patient satisfaction, innovation in the delivery of care and related aspects of clinical performance. Senior candidates are expected to show evidence of teaching, leadership, service and broad visibility, with clinical research a plus.
