Clinical Cross-Appointments

The Department of Medicine is a clinical department within the Faculty of Medicine. The department, along with the 11 other clinical departments, allow for clinical cross-appointments of current clinical faculty members between departments. This is often for the purpose of participating in teaching activities across departments.

For those interested in applying to the Department of Medicine for a clinical cross-appointment please see the section of the Faculty of Medicine website that outlines the requirements for application. Requests for separate or co-signed letters of support from the Chair of the Department should be sent to the Department Academic Appointments Office at dom.academicappts@utoronto.ca. Full and part-time faculty members will need to identify the appropriate Academic Position Description.

For clinical faculty members who hold a primary appointment with the Department of Medicine please contact the Department Academic Appointments Office at dom.academicappts@utoronto.ca with any questions and requests for a letter of support from the Department of Medicine Chair.

For non-clinical ‘cross-appointments’ please refer to the section on non-clinical academic appointments for more details on status-only and non-budgetary cross-appointments.
