Faculty Handbook



The College of Medicine has a wealth of resources to assist its faculty members in their day to day careers and in overall career advancement and achievement.  In addition, there are a variety of policies and guidelines that have been created to assure the high quality and integrity of the University, the College and its faculty. It is difficult to compile the diverse opportunities and facilities of the College in one document, but this document serves as a guide post to finding many of the most important resources, documents, and guidelines, all of which are available online.  As you explore the available resources, you will inevitably discover others and thus grow your own list of resources that add to those in this handbook.

It is hoped that this handbook will aid all faculty members in pursuing the mission of the Wexner Medical Center which is, “Dedicated to Creating the Future of Medicine to Improve People’s Lives” and the shared vision of its members which is, “working as a team, we will shape the future of medicine by creating, disseminating and applying new knowledge, and by personalizing health care to meet the needs of each individual.”
