To the Editor.—Perhaps it is comforting
to some readers and clinician-educators to think that medical school promotion
committees consider teaching contributions important when making promotion
decisions about faculty clinician-educators, as indicated in the findings
of a survey of promotion committee chairs reported by Dr Beasley and colleagues.1However, we need to remember that what is important
to the faculty members at issue—and to the future of medical education—is
not what promotion committees say, but what they do.
