Pathways to Success on a Clinician Educator Track

August 13, 2020


Full time clinician/clinician educator positions are the most common track in junior faculty, yet some faculty struggle to find mentorship and resources to meet promotion criteria. Given the small size of A/I it is even more imperative to ensure the early success of A/I junior faculty.

This webinar’s leaders, a junior faculty member, a mid-career mentor, and the recipient of the 2020 Educator Development Award, will share perspectives on succeeding as a clinician educator, including tips on achieving excellence in the major areas of effort (service, education, and research).

Resources discussed in the webinar are listed and linked here.
