Benefits to UTMB Community Teaching Physicians
UTMB realizes the commitment that is required by
community teaching physicians that volunteer their time
to teach our medical students. UTMB offers several
perks to say thank you for the time that physicians and
their staff dedicate to teaching our future physicians.
UTMB Appointment - It is an
LCME requirement that all UTMB community
teaching physicians receive an appointment with UTMB.
This 'without salary' appointment will give the
teaching physician the title 'Clinical Assistant
Professor' for UTMB. Every discipline will be
given this title through the appropriate UTMB dept.
For example, Pediatricians will receive their letter
of offer from the UTMB Dept. of Pediatrics.
The appointment process does require a small amount
of paperwork on the part of the preceptor.
They will receive this paperwork through regular
mail and three forms must be filled out and returned
to UTMB. The preceptor must also include a
copy of his/her CV and a copy of their academic
transcript from their medical school.
Cat. II CME - Every hour that a community
physician spends teaching UTMB medical students is
equivalent to an equal number of Cat. II CME hours. UTMB will send preceptors a letter every August
stating the number of teaching hours provided to
UTMB. This letter may be presented to self
declare the same number of hours for Cat. II CME.
UTMB Moody Medical Library Access - Community
Teaching Physicians who teach UTMB medical students
are eligible to receive a UTMB username and password
