South Carolina AHEC Appointment & Promotion Information
Full-time, AHEC-affiliated Faculty Appointments
The Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) College of Medicine recognizes the importance of full-time, AHEC-affiliated faculty members (salaried by AHEC-affiliated institutions) who do not pursue traditional tenure-track faculty appointments. These clinicians play a very important role both in their programs and in their communities. The heavy teaching and patient care responsibilities of these clinicians may limit their ability to participate in significant research or scholarship endeavors. However, their contributions to the education of medical students, residents, peers, and the local, state, and national medical communities warrant their consideration for appointment at MUSC as AHEC faculty. The following procedures and criteria provide a structure for appointing, evaluating, and promoting AHEC-affiliated faculty members.
