The major criteria for appointment for faculty in the University Medical Line shall be excellence in the overall mix of clinical care, clinical teaching, scholarly activity that advances clinical medicine, and institutional service appropriate to the programmatic need the individual is expected to fulfill. Faculty rank and line will be determined by the qualifications and experience of the successful candidate. The appointment will be at Stanford University campus or at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Palo Alto.

The successful candidate will be expected to have outstanding research and teaching skills and, if applicable, clinical skills. The candidate will be required to contribute to our research programs, and either to have an established track record of funded research or to have demonstrated the ability or shown the potential to obtain peer-reviewed research funding.
