Honorary titles for distinguished clinicians

The Management Board considered a paper outlining options for conferring titles on NHS consultants who do not meet the academic requirements for the title of Professor or Reader, but whose significant contribution the College wishes to recognise. The Board agreed that these individuals could be given the honorary title of Adjunct Professor or Adjunct Reader as appropriate. This title is already in use in the College to recognise eminent business leaders who act in a teaching capacity. The same process for awarding the title will be used, with applications from Heads of Department and endorsed by the relevant Faculty Principal considered by an Adjunct Appointments Panel led by the Deputy Rector. Titles will be awarded for five years.
