To obtain a faculty appointment from one of the Ontario medical universities, please submit your application and CV to ROMP.
ROMP teaching appointments are made through any Ontario medical school and are approved for physicians who teach 150 hours with ROMP over three years. Part-time faculty appointments require CCFP or Royal College certification or the equivalent.
All medical schools require that any ROMP preceptors who wish to teach residents must have a university affiliation (faculty appointment) in order to do so. Undergraduate teaching does not necessarily require a faculty appointment; however, some schools do require preceptors who are teaching core rotations be affiliated with a university.
Obtaining a Faculty Appointment
Applications for teaching appointments are obtained from the ROMP office. All preceptors are encouraged to participate in the ongoing improvement and development of the program. Preceptors who are eligable for faculty appointments can obtain one from the school of their choosing. The process for obtaining faculty appointments varies by school.
When a preceptor supervises a student, he/she is not credited with every hour that the student is on site, rather they are credited for outpatient supervision in half day blocks.
McMaster Faculty Appointments
To obtain a McMaster University part-time faculty appointment, current ROMP preceptors must have CCFP or Royal College certification (or equivelant) and must submit the Application for Appointment form, a current CV and have previously submitted their Teaching Application to the ROMP office. These documents are necessary to complete the process for faculty appointment.
McMaster Faculty Appointments last three years. ROMP will notify preceptors of upcoming renewals and will assist in renewing these appointments.
Nothern Ontario School of Medicine Faculty Appointments
To obtain a NOSM part-time faculty appointment, current ROMP preceptors must have CCFP or Royal College certification (or equivelant). ROMP will send preceptors a statement of Educational Philosophy, which must be signed and returned to the ROMP office along with a current CV and three references.
Other Ontario Medical Schools Faculty Appointments
To obtain a faculty appointment at the University of Toronto, the University of Western Ontario, the University of Ottawa and Queen’s University, current ROMP preceptors must have CCFP or Royal College certification (or equivelant). Preceptors must submit a current CV to the ROMP office, but no other forms are needed. The university at which the physician is requesting the faculty appointment must be clearly indicated on a covering letter.
