Hi- does anyone have any experience or knowledge regarding how a practicing psychologist goes about getting a faculty appointment (not as an active professor though) at a local university health science center or med school?
It seems as though it could be a good credential to have and a way to have a link to the local academic community.

You mean as an adjunct?

Not really adjunct (as in teaching a course), but rather having the designation as a faculty member (or perhaps 'clinical professor')

In most cases, you have to perform some service for the department to obtain such a designation. Such services can range from supervising grad students to providing a field placement site to giving guest lectures.

My predoc internship site was affiliated with a medical school -- those psychologists were considered adjunct faculty of that university, due to the med school affiliation. Some taught classes, others did not - just their association with the internship site (and supervision of interns) was enough to get the adjunct status.
