SCOPE OF DUTIES OF FULL-TIME FACULTY IN THE
UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA'S SCHOOL OF VETERINARY MEDICINE
Full-time faculty members at the University of California's Schools of Veterinary Medicine have the following duties (1) the teaching of the respective professional curricula to undergraduate and graduate students and to postgraduate students such as interns, resident, fellows, and practicing professionals; (2) research and development; (3) such academic functions as are inherent in responsible faculty service, for example, contributions to curricular reform or appropriate appraisal necessary for judicious appointments and promotions; and (4) community and public welfare service.
The first of these generic duties, and frequently the second and fourth as well, often are inseparable from participation in and responsibility for care of animals. The latter may include diagonistic, therapeutic or consultative service for ambulatory or hospitalized patients, depending upon the discipline, the administrative organization or the particular teaching program, and the logistics of the care of animals best adapted to teaching and to the individual faculty member's research. Such services may be provided in University-owned or in University-affiliated facilities or elsewhere as required by the University's best interests and the community and public welfare.
