Teaching Scholar Service
One of the major undertakings for the Society is to see that teaching activity is recognized through the "faculty forum" of promotion. The Society has developed recommendations for the documentation of teaching activity for consideration during the promotion and tenure process. While the Society should not be involved in decisions regarding individual faculty members - that is the job of the Rank and Tenure Committee - it can have a major impact on the general significance of good teaching throughout the College by helping to set promotion guidelines which give educational activities proper emphasis.
Other activities for the Society per the Mission Statement, is to assist individual faculty in the evaluation or improvement of teaching effort and to establish an annual lectureship on some aspect of medical education. In the future, the Society may develop additional items related to the general improvement of educational experiences in the institution and the furthering of the College's Mission Statement.
