The Clinician Educator Guidebook : Steps and Strategies for Advancing Your Career Paperback / softback
Edited by Laura Weiss, MD, MA Roberts
This concise, easy-to-read guidebook is designed as a go-to resource for clinician educators working to establish the foundation for a successful academic career. This book begins with preliminary lessons such as interviewing for a first faculty position, how to prepare a robust curriculum vitae, how to evaluate a letter of offer, and understanding the process of academic promotion. Further chapters highlight the refinement of essential academic skills, including how to effectively give a lecture, how to approach clinical supervision, incorporating technology in educational innovation, and how to give feedback, among other topics.
Chapters pertaining to clinical care cover a range of topics, including how to maintain excellent clinical documentation, how to evaluate clinical research, and how to avoid medico-legal problems. Clinician educators, while essential to the academic workforce, often feel overwhelmed by the newness and breadth of responsibilities that go with their first faculty job.
Addressing that problem, this guidebook also emphasizes careful attention to preserving a healthy work/life balance as clinician educators navigate the demands of their professional and personal lives. The Clinician Educator Guidebook: Steps and Strategies for Advancing Your Career is derived from the larger acclaimed text, The Academic Medicine Handbook, and is an indispensable resource for a unique group of dedicated faculty who play an essential role in academic medicine.
