The mission of UAMS and its College of Medicine (COM) is to improve the health, healthcare and well-being of all Arkansans and others in the region, nation, and the world through the education of exemplary health care providers, the provision of standard-setting, comprehensive clinical programs, scientific discovery and research, and the extension of services to the State of Arkansas and beyond. This mission is accomplished through collegial work that manifests the institution’s core values of integrity, respect, teamwork, creativity, and excellence. The primary instrument by which this mission is executed for the College of Medicine is the Faculty. Their success significantly depends on a system that provides adequate recognition and rewards for their work in promoting the mission of the College.
As you consider how to make the best possible case for your promotion request, think about how you and your professional work serve the mission of the College of Medicine. Your P&T packet should provide the narrative thread of your career as well as specific evidence that you are forwarding the mission of the College and have fulfilled the requirements for promotion to the rank you seek. The narrative and evidence should be arranged in parallel with the criteria for promotion as laid out in “the P&T document.”
