ESTABLISHING A FACULTY POSITION Department enters position into the DMR (Duke Medicine Recruitment).

Offer letter template is located on the SOM website, www.medschool.duke.edu (a Proforma is required for Medicine and OB-GYN) All appointments to regular rank faculty or track changes going into the tenure track require an approved offer before hire can take place.

Silent Tenure Clock for Track IV or V In the Clinical departments, the "regular" tenure clock starts when someone enters into the tenure track of Assistant Professor or Associate Professor, track I, II, or III. A tenure decision must be decided before the end of the 10th year. The "silent" clock starts if someone is appointed to either Track IV or Track V. If they meet the qualifications and decide to move over to the tenure track, then that must happen before the 10 year mark. For example, if Dr. DoLittle was appointed as Assistant Professor, Track IV on July 1, 2005 and then decided to move over to the tenure track on July 1, 2010, then 5 years have already passed since he was appointed as track IV. He now has only 5 more years for a tenure decision to be made. If Dr. DoLittle decided that he wanted to move over to the tenure track on July 1, 2015, he cannot. Ten years have passed and he has missed any opportunity to move over to the tenure track. However, He can stay in Track IV and be promoted to Associate Professor and then later be promoted to Professor and at such time he reaches the qualifications and criteria for Professor, he could be considered for Professor with tenure. However, we stress he must meet the criteria of Professor with tenure. The later is usually exceptional consideration and is not routine.
