PURPOSE / SCOPE:
Provide guidelines for consulting and employment outside of ICOM duties
Employees may engage in consulting and employment outside of ICOM duties only after review and approval of the employee’s supervisor and the ICOM Dean. Activities that can enrich professional competence and provide a service to the community will be prioritized. The following guidelines should be borne in mind:
- As a general rule, any outside employment or consulting should contribute afﬁrmatively to the employee’s professional advancement and correlate with the employee’s duties to ICOM.
- A primary consideration should be whether or not consulting and employment outside of ICOM duties interferes substantially with the employee’s classroom teaching schedule, student interviewing and advising role, scholarly activity or other ICOM responsibilities.
The Dean must be consulted in advance in those instances where proposed consulting and employment outside of ICOM duties, such as regular outside private practice, part-time teaching at other educational institutions, or substantial educational undertakings, could have a negative impact on employee duties and responsibilities. For faculty employed at less than 1.0 FTE, participation in private practice or other healthcare opportunities are not subject to Dean approval.
