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 Faculty Appointment - If a physician
is teaching for the Practice of Medicine 1 (POM1)
Course, any of the 3rd year clerkships or the 4th
year Ambulatory Community Selective (ACS), then UTMB
will offer the physician a without salary (WOS)
appointment. This appointment assigns the
title of 'Clinical Assistant Professor' for UTMB.
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
