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 29, 2016. The performance review will cover the 2015 Calendar Year (Jan 1 to Dec 31 2015). 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 Faculty Evaluation Process Step by Step

1. All eligible university employed faculty will complete the self-evaluation. This year, we will be phasing out the submission of the self-evaluation through GUMC Professional for its final year and we will be using a word template going forward. The evaluation can be submitted one of two ways this year: using a word template or using GUMC Professional.

For detailed instructions on how to complete the self-evaluation, see our Faculty Performance Evaluation Guide.

2. For junior faculty, the self-evaluation forms 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.

3. The Chair/Division or Program Director will then meet with the faculty member to review their performance and set goals/expectations for the next year.

 4. As in previous years, review of the performance and setting goals/expectations of tenured faculty members will be conducted by the Department Chair.
