Typically, physicians in this category volunteer their time to the University on a part-time (benefits ineligible) basis and provide their services either at the University or one of its affiliated or associated hospitals. Appointment to this category is frequently contingent upon achievement and maintenance of attending privileges with UChicago Medicine or an affiliated or associated hospital.
