Promotion to Associate Professor requires demonstration of longitudinal commitment to student education. We will not hold PCS moves against you! (In other words, if you were appointed as an Assistant Professor and then deployed or PCS'ed to a location with minimal student engagement, this is not your fault). In general, promotion to Associate Professor requires (see checklist):
Your way to market your promotion package. The portfolio must include your Academic CV (with USU student teaching and service included); Abbreviated CV (Board of Regents format--not everyone has time to read the full CV!); Educational philosophy; Evidence of Clinical Privileges (credentials); Continuing Medical Education (verification of CME hours) and 4 samples of your academic writing (.pdf files of your lead-author papers). With a sound Educator's Portfolio, the promotion process is much smoother for all reviewers.
