Non-clinical Appointment in Clinical Department

In the event that you use an adjunct faculty member for teaching with no clinical involvement, they would not need to go through the clinical credentialing process listed above. You would follow the Adjunct Non-clinical Process stating on the appointment request letter that the faculty member would have no clinical involvement.
