VIII. Movement from HP Faculty Appointment System to Tenure System

An appointment in the Health Programs Faculty Appointment system does not preclude an individual from applying for a tenure system position for which the individual is qualified. Similarly, previous service as an HP faculty member is not a prerequisite for a tenure system position.

When an HP faculty member accepts a position in the tenure system, his/her responsibilities may change and total salary and rank may also change. Rank is associated with criteria that may differ based on the appointment system, e.g., HP or tenure system. The base salary should not change, but would be specified in the letter of offer, as would the practice component portion of the salary.
