Therefore, upon receipt of an approved initial candidate application package, the Department's Academic Personnel Office (APO) will notify the CVO to send the candidate a medical staff application. (Processing of application usually takes 3 - 4 months.) The Department's APO can assist the candidate on how to complete the application and review it for accuracy and completeness.
