Appointments can be made one year at a time. Please refer to the appointment checklist for term appointments for the list of documents that must be submitted to Faculty Relations.
If the appointee is a not a citizen or permanent resident of Canada, please review the requirements for recruiting foreign academics.
In general, Clinical Fellows receive salaries through UBC Payroll, which attracts benefits (Extended Health, Dental and Employee and Family Assistant Program) and statutory deductions. Eligibility for benefits is based on a minimum salary requirement, earnings type and on an appointment of at least one year. If the salary does not meet the minimum requirement or if the appointment is for less than one year, then statutory deductions apply (Canada Pension Plan, Employment Insurance and WorkSafe BC). Fellowship earnings are not eligible for benefits.
The appointees are not members of the Faculty Association.
