Cedars-Sinai Improves Professorial Structure

The Cedars-Sinai professorial structure has been enhanced. These changes will better recognize individuals who make sustained and significant contributions to clinical scholarship and important contributions to collaborative research projects.

The research-based Professorial Series and the clinical-educator-based Clinical Professorial Series have been restructured into three tracks:

  • Physician/PhD investigator: requiring high-quality basic or translational research, and extramural, peer-reviewed federal or national funding
  • Clinical scholar: requiring significant clinical scholarship exemplified by impactful publications, innovative clinical trials programs, educational outcomes research or creation of innovative biotechnologies
  • Clinical educator: requiring documentation of high-quality clinical service and exemplary teaching and educational leadership

Academic Human Resources is offering workshops to provide administrators and faculty with the opportunity to learn more about these enhancements. Workshops are scheduled for:

  • Monday, March 30, noon-1 p.m., Advanced Health Sciences Pavilion, PEC 8
  • Tuesday, March 31, noon-1 p.m., Advanced Health Sciences Pavilion, PEC 1

For additional information, please see the Academic Human Resources site on the Intranet.

To read the full memo about this change from Shlomo Melmed, MD, senior vice president of Academic Affairs and dean of the medical faculty, and Bruce Gewertz, MD, surgeon-in-chief, chair of the Department of Surgery, vice president for Interventional Services and vice dean of Academic Affairs, please click the PDF link below.
