Clinical faculty

A clinical appointment in the appropriate rank is made to a person who holds a primary appointment with an outside agency, in private practice, or a non-academic unit of the University. Clinical faculty make substantial contributions to University programs through their expertise, interest, and motivation to work with the faculty in preparing and assisting with the instruction of students in practicum settings.
