Clinical professor is an academic appointment made to a member of a profession who is associated with a university and engages in practical instruction of professional students.[1] It generally does not offer a "tenure track", but can be either full or part time, and is typically noted for its emphasis on practical skills training as opposed to theoretical matters. Thus, most members of such faculty are expected to have considerable practical experience in their respective fields of expertise; unlike with most other faculty, this is deemed at least as important as educational credentials.
