The rank of Affiliate is for voluntary
members of the faculty who are not employed by the University or by
UMMHC and whose participation in UMMS academic programs encompasses only a small proportion of
their total professional activity. Those appointed as
faculty affiliates carry the title Faculty Affiliate in (Dept.) or
Senior Faculty Affiliate in (Dept.). Affiliate appointments are
described in Article 8 of the Academic Personnel Policy.
Rank of Affiliate: Appointments as an Affiliate shall be based on contributions to the
academic programs of the University of Massachusetts Medical School, and
on professional accomplishments, rather than on hospital rank, degree
of responsibility or seniority in other professional endeavors.
Rank of Senior Faculty Affiliate: The rank of Senior Faculty Affiliate in (Dept) shall be reserved for
those faculty members who have made meritorious contributions to
University of Massachusetts Medical School programs over a period of at
least ten (10) years, or who have achieved special distinction or
recognition in their professional activities. The rank of Senior Faculty
Affiliate may also be used for a retired faculty member who has served
for ten (10) years prior to his/her retirement.
