Status and Adjunct Appointments

The academic and research goals of the Department of OS&OT cannot be met without the participation of talented individuals from many institutions and agencies outside of the university. The aim of Status-Only and Adjunct Appointments is to recognize the participation of highly qualified and dedicated researchers, practitioners and members of the community in the academic and clinical education components of the programs. These appointees augment the efforts and expertise of the full-time departmental faculty. We are seeking appointees who:

  • maintain a high level of expertise and competence in their disciplines,
  • are skilled at communicating expertise to members of their respective disciplines and the broader health care community,
  • can stimulate, challenge and develop the scholarly and clinical capacity of students and,
  • contribute to the growth of the discipline by building the body of knowledge or advancing the quality, efficiency and effectiveness of practice.
