Appointment to the Faculty
"Any paid, affiliated, or adjunct faculty member at UTHSC who holds an earned doctorate or the highest degree appropriate to the field and has demonstrated an interest in research may be nominated by a Chair for appointment to the CGHS faculty."
Appointment to the College is required before a faculty member may (1) direct a graduate course and serve on thesis or dissertation committees, or (2) supervise the research of students working toward degrees awarded through the CGHS. Applications for appointment to the faculty ( pdf or doc ) are reviewed by the Credentials Committee twice each year. Recommendation for appointment to the faculty are made by the Committee to the Graduate Studies Council.
To be certified to direct student research, faculty must have served on a thesis or dissertation committee or supervised postdoctoral students for a year. Approval to direct Ph.D. research also requires that the mentor have an independent research program.
