The rank of Instructor does not fall within
the other tracks and serves multiple purposes. This title may be used
for both voluntary and employed members of the faculty, including
University salaried and UMMHC-salaried, whose participation in the
academic programs of the University of Massachusetts Medical School
encompasses a small proportion of their professional time but whose
efforts represent a meaningful contribution to its academic activities.
The title of Instructor may also be used for those faculty without a
terminal degree who participate to a significant extent in the academic
programs of the University of Massachusetts Medical School. The rank of
Instructor may also be used as an entry level faculty appointment for
senior trainees who are transitioning to the standard academic
tracks. Appointees in this track are described in Article 9 of the Academic Personnel Policy.
