To be eligible you must be a full-time instructor or assistant professor engaged in patient care for at least 50 percent of the time or a part-time instructor or assistant professor engaged in patient care for at least 75 percent of his or her allocated part-time.
You must be in support of our clinical mission (refer to the FAQs) with at least two years and not more than six years of clinical service as a Baylor College of Medicine faculty member. If administrative, educational, quality and scholarship activities are based on clinical patient care and clinical excellence, the effort can be included in patient care activities. * (View below specifications.)
Candidates may self-nominate. However, all nominations must be approved and submitted to the selection committee by the faculty member's section chief, chair, medical director or center director.
- Years before completion of a fellowship or other advanced training should not be counted as part of the total number of years as a faculty member, even when the individual had a co-appointment as a fellow and an instructor or assistant professor during that time period.
- If prior clinical faculty experience outside Baylor combined with faculty experience at Baylor (total faculty time at all institutions) equals or exceeds six or more years on the date of the portfolio due date, the faculty should be nominated for the STAR award not the Early Career Faculty Award.
