Faculty Evaluation Process

The goal of the Annual Faculty Performance Review process is to provide a meaningful assessment of faculty productivity, promote the development of goals and expectations, foster and support faculty development and mentorship, and guide junior faculty in career advancement through formative discussions with senior faculty and the Department Chair/Division or Program Director.

This year, the Medical Center’s annual faculty performance review process will begin on Friday January 16, 2015. The performance review will cover the 2014 Calendar Year (Jan 1 to Dec 31 2014). According to our established process; all Tenured/Tenure-eligible track, Research track, and Medical Educator track faculty members will complete the Faculty Self-Evaluation Form.

The self-evaluation forms for all junior faculty will then be reviewed by the primary appointment Department/Division or Program Performance Review Committee, using well-defined anchors. This Committee will provide a summary of the faculty member’s performance to the Chair/Division or Program Director, who will then meet with the faculty member to review their performance and set goals/expectations for the next year. As in previous years, review of the performance and setting goals/expectations of tenured faculty members will be conducted by the Department Chair.

GUMC Professional

This online management tool will assist you in preparation of your annual faculty performance review report. Specifically,GUMC Professional will allow you to manage and prepare information regarding your professional activities, including education, research, publications, grants, courses, presentations, service, and mentoring.

While this process, if not already completed, requires a faculty member to spend time recording his/her accomplishments and look forward to the coming year’s activities and goals, this information will be very useful for other research and educational activities. For example, GUMC Professional can generate a biosketch in the appropriate formats for the National Institutes of Health and National Science Foundation, as well as curriculum vitae in the approved Georgetown University format.
