Three Views on Faculty Tenure in Medical Schools.
Jones, Robert F., Ed.
Academic Medicine, v68 n8 p588-93 Aug 1993
Three academicians (Paul J. Friedman, Gail H. Cassell, Richard A. Cooper) discuss tenure in academic medicine. Friedman explains and defends the current system; Cassell argues that negative perceptions about tenured faculty are not supported by research but that better evaluation criteria are needed; and Cooper proposes that the purposes for tenure can and should be accomplished in other ways.
