Clinical Titles

Clinical teaching and interaction with students is a rewarding activity and Sydney Medical School prides itself on the high caliber clinical teaching it offers.

Regular clinical tutors are able, and encouraged, to apply for academic titles through the Clinical School and to take advantage of the benefits these titles offer, including library support and access to the University’s online journal library.

Clinical titles are awarded to those who have made recent commitments to regular teaching activities and who will continue these teaching activities throughout the duration of their title. Relevant teaching can include the supervision of students in a clinical setting, small group teaching (such as communication tutorials and bedside teaching), delivering lectures, and coordination of blocks or themes (eg. Population Health).

Teaching and research titles are awarded for a period of one year and all titles are renewable.

To apply, please complete the Application for Clinical Title form and return as per the directions on the form. You are required to outline your current and future teaching activities, as they relate to the support of the clinical school, in section three of the form. If you are unsure of which affiliation to apply for please refer to the Honorary Titles Policy.

Clinical titles are awarded at various levels ranging from ‘Associate’ to ‘Professor’. You may note the level of title you wish to have considered on the nomination form for assessment by the Clinical School’s Associate Dean,
