Status-Only Academic Appointment (Non MD)

 

Definition:

Status‐only University appointees are employed outside of the University, usually by an affiliated institution and normally receive no remuneration from the University of Toronto.  Such appointments are made to allow an individual faculty member to participate more fully in a University Department’s teaching or research program. Status‐only (Non-MD) appointments do not fall under the Faculty of Medicine Clinical Faculty Policy as they are held by faculty members who do not hold a Medical Degree. Individuals being considered for a status‐only (Non-MD) appointment normally hold full‐time employment arrangements with another institution with a job description that is primarily academic (research and teaching) in nature. Please see the following document: Section X Status Only or Adjunct or Visiting Professors
