Faculty who hold an academic appointment in another University of Toronto department and are on paid salary in that academic unit, may then hold a cross-appointment in the Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation, which is non-salaried.  This is considered a non-budgetary cross appointment.

Clinical faculty who are employed by a hospital or research institute, as well as appointed in a clinical department, would apply for a status appointment in IHPME.


The initial appointment will be for three years. The renewal appointment will be for five years. All appointments will have an end date on June 30th.
