Non-MD or Status-Only Academic Appointments

Academic Appointments of Non-MD/Status-Only Faculty

Please also see more information about academic appointments in the Department of Radiation Oncology.

Non-MD/Status-only faculty refers to an individual not licensed to practice medicine.  Status-only appointments allow an individual to participate more fully in the academic unit’s teaching or research program, though the position is non-salaried, receiving no remuneration from the University of Toronto.

Individuals wishing to be considered for status-only positions should:

  • hold full-time employment arrangements with another institution
  • currently hold a position that is primarily academic (research and teaching) in nature.

Academic appointments are offered for a period of three years. An updated CV that adheres to UT DRO Annual Report guidelines and teaching dossier are required annually and will be reviewed with the Chair or delegate as part of an academic performance review. Reappointment is contingent upon satisfactory annual reviews demonstrating continuing contributions to the academic programs and progress towards promotion to assistant professor.

Status-only appointments are typically granted to employees of affiliated hospitals and research institutions and are governed by the Policy and Procedures on Academic Appointments (PDF 389KB).

This information is for those who are seeking their initial appointment to the UT DRO.

Applications for an appointment are due November 4, 2011 at 5pm to emma.ito@utoronto.ca.
