Part-time Faculty

Overview

If you are a part time faculty member at NOSM you are invited to join the NOSMFSA. To do so simply send an email request to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

In the recent past the NOSMFSA, in cooperation with the Physician Clinical Teachers Association, discussed proposals to improve the promotions policy with the School’s Board of Directors and secured a number of improvements, including an appeals procedure. Revised policies were passed by the NOSM Board of Directors in May 2011.

Non-physician part time faculty have three positions on the Faculty Promotions Committee, one for each Division, who are appointed by the NOSMFSA.

Physician faculty at the School can belong to the Physician Clinical Teachers Association and the NOSM Faculty and Staff Association, and there is an agreement between the two Associations to cooperate on many matters, including encouraging physician faculty to belong to both Associations. Through the NOSMFSA, physician faculty also belong to the Canadian Association of University Teachers (www.caut.ca), and as part of the agreement between the Associations the PCTA has sent a representative to the Clinical Faculty Committee of the CAUT, which includes physician faculty from Medical Schools across Canada (http://www.caut.ca/pages.asp?lang=1&page=191).
