Eligibility for Membership in the Academy

Any UCSF School of Medicine faculty member who (a) is actively engaged in teaching medical students, residents, and/or faculty development for teachers/educators, or who has a significant impact on medical education, and (b) has been on faculty (preferably at UCSF) for a minimum of three years (not including time in residency or fellowship) is eligible to apply for membership in the Academy. There is no academic rank or degree requirement for application to the Academy; the focus is on outstanding accomplishment. While the majority of our members are primarily educators at the UME level, we welcome applications supported by exceptional teaching at the level of GME and faculty development for teachers/educators. Strongest applicants to the Academy will demonstrate scope and impact beyond their home department.
