​Academic Appointments/Titles

Unmodified Titles: Tenured/Tenure-Track Appointments

Tenure-track appointments are designated for research faculty only. Appointments to tenure are made in the grades of Associate Professor and Professor, following a peer-review process.

For more information, please visit the CUIMC Office of Academic Affairs and review the Principles and Customs Governing University-Wide Tenure Reviews.

Modified Titles: "at CUMC" Appointments

These are made in all ranks (Instructor, Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, and Professor) and include three areas of academic focus, or tracks: (1) educational scholarship & leadership, (2) applied health care & public health interventions, and (3) investigation.

For more information and documents on the "at CUMC" Modified Titles please visit the CUIMC Office of Academic Affairs or contact us at cdmfacultydevelopment@cumc.columbia.edu. Materials from an annual CDM seminar (most recently, March 5, 2019) on this topic are available here.
