About this book

This book is a practical guide to the appointment, promotion, and tenure (APT) process for clinical faculty members employed by medical schools. The number of clinical faculty members in US medical schools has increased exponentially in the last two decades. At the same time, faculty career tracks and promotion requirements have changed dramatically and medical schools have introduced multiple non-tenure career tracks. Currently, only about 25% of the approximately 150,000 members of clinical departments. 
This book provides insights and recommendations on career planning and academic promotion for clinical faculty members. It also addresses much of the “mythology” surrounding the APT process and demonstrates how academic promotion should be used as a career-building process rather than a daunting high-risk event. Topics include concepts and processes within academic promotion; navigating the academic promotion and tenure process; and managing the outcome of the APT application. Academic Promotion for Clinicians is a valuable resource for clinical medicine faculty members as they engage in and successfully handle the challenges in the APT process and thus realize their career goals.

Reviews

“This book is well written and full of detailed advice supported by experience. Anyone planning a career in academic medicine and many of those already in the middle of their academic career will find this book an invaluable resource.” (Holly Salzman, Family Medicine, Vol 52 (1), 2020)
“The purpose is to provide guidance for clinician-educators and their advisors, and describe dilemmas inherent to academic promotions in this changing healthcare environment. … I highly recommend this book for those entrusted with granting academic promotions, for academic leaders concerned with updating promotions criteria, and, especially, for academic clinicians and their advisors trying to navigate a confusing but potentially gratifying process.” (Marjorie Greenfield, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2018)
