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 to access the online medical resources available through the UTMB Moody Medical Library.  If you have interest in obtaining access to these medical resources, please contact Brian Sullivan.
