Adjunct Clinical Faculty at Stanford

The Adjunct Clinical Faculty (ACF) consists of physicians and certain other health professionals appointed by the department chairs in clinical departments for the purpose of participation on a voluntary, part-time basis in the academic programs of the departments, usually in the role of teacher. Members of the ACF are not members of the Academic Council, the Medical Center Line, the Clinician/Educator line or the Academic Staff, nor do they accrue time toward tenure by length of service.

The knowledge, experience and perspective of the ACF and their allotment of time and effort are highly valued assets to the academic programs. The ACF contribute to the academic programs in a variety of roles and at diverse locations. Their role typically involves the teaching of Stanford students, housestaff, postdoctoral fellows and other physicians and staff.
