If you are a part time faculty member at NOSM you are invited to join the NUFSA. To do so simply send an email request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The NUFSA, in cooperation with the Physician Clinical Teachers Association, have discussed proposals to improve the promotions policy with the School’s Board of Directors and secured a number of improvements, including an appeals procedure.
Physician faculty at the School can belong to the Physician Clinical Teachers Association and the NOSM University Faculty and Staff Association, and there is an agreement between the two Associations to cooperate on many matters, including encouraging physician faculty to belong to both Associations. Through the NUFSA, physician faculty also belong to the Canadian Association of University Teachers (www.caut.ca), and as part of the agreement between the Associations the PCTA has sent a representative to the Clinical Faculty Committee of the CAUT, which includes physician faculty from Medical Schools across Canada.
