Change in Line Name - Medical Center Line/University Medical Line
Effective June 14, 2021, following action by the Faculty Senate and the Board of Trustees, the Medical Center Line (MCL) has been renamed the University Medical Line (UML).
This is a change in name only; it is intended to help recruit and retain world-class medical faculty members and clarify that medical line faculty are employed by Stanford University and not its medical centers. Policies pertaining to this faculty line remain unchanged, with the exception that official faculty titles will no longer be required to include the specific medical center affiliation(s) of the faculty member.
Full implementation of the change in line name is underway as faculty titles and profiles, data and HR systems, websites and handbooks are being updated.
