Adjunct Clinical Faculty Appointment
Adjunct clinical faculty appointments are granted to those who serve in a clinical environment (i.e. clinical preceptors hosting Medical, PA, and Pharmacy students). Clinical credentialing is mandatory and must be completed before teaching students. Please use the links below for preparing the packet for submission to the Office of Faculty Affairs.
Things to Remember!Typically adjunct clinical faculty are not paid, but if they are paid a position must be posted and an HR Adjunct Faculty Approval notification should be received by the department and Faculty Affairs.
Please submit the adjunct appointment packet via email to Chris.Mason@unthsc.edu at least 10 business days prior to the start date to allow time to review and route for approval by the Dean and Provost.

Non-clinical Appointment in a Clinical Department
In the event that you use an adjunct faculty member for teaching with no clinical involvement, they would not need to go through the clinical credentialing process listed above. You would follow the Adjunct Non-clinical Process stating on the appointment request letter that the faculty member would have no clinical involvement.
