Candidates Seeking a Faculty Appointment

Application Requirements for Faculty Appointment
Candidates seeking appointment to the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine should review the above requirements and guidelines.

Initial Faculty Appointment Application Packet 
This packet should be reviewed, completed, and submitted by the faculty candidate to his or her department chair. Electronic completion and submission is preferred.

Curriculum Vitae Guidelines
This document provides guidance on how to properly submit an academically-focused CV in the required medical school format.

New Faculty Orientation

All candidates for initial faculty appointment must complete a new faculty orientation session.  The goal of this experience is to introduce the candidate to the academic mission of the medical school and to create awareness of the variety of resources available to faculty members. 

There are normally six sessions per calendar year, occurring at the medical school building (2 Riverside Circle, Roanoke, VA 24016) and at various times of the day.  Remote access via live webinar is also available. 

Contact the faculty affairs office for further information about the orientation process.

Accessing Virginia Tech Systems

After your appointment has been approved and activated you will receive a 9-digit VT ID number. You will need that number to activate your Virginia Tech Personal IDentificatier (PID). 

It is important to set up your VT PID and email account as soon as possible so you will be able to access library resources and to access computer resources such as Zoom, Canvas, Elements, and the university’s learning management system. 

Please note: You will not have a full VT PID until you complete all 3 of these steps: (user name, password, and 2-factor authentication). Please choose your username carefully, because you cannot change it once it is established.
