Career Path

There are many career paths in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, however, most of our faculty members fit into one of two major categories: Contract Academic Staff (CAS) and Tenure Track Staff. Contract Academic Staff (CAS) may be further divided into Clinical, Research and Professional staff. If you are unsure as to which category you fit in, please check your letter of offer or most recent reappointment letter.

In 2015, the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences launched a Tenure Track for Clinician Scientists program, providing a hybrid funding model to support clinician scientists who wish to continue an independent research career in the field of health. Clinician scientists may be considered for a tenure track position once they have successfully received salary support at the FRQS Senior Chercheur Boursier level. For further information please speak to the Chair of your department.
