Developing the careers of junior faculty is an important responsibility for chairs, which has become more challenging in recent years.  For research-focused faculty, the major issue may be protecting research time before they obtain grant funding, while for clinically intensive faculty, there may be little opportunity for academic accomplishment and promotion. Education-focused faculty may find it difficult to support their education effort. Additional concerns may be non-traditional and part-time roles, adjunct faculty, career interruptions while raising families, and perceived differences in career goals among millennials. This session will explore strategies for promoting successful careers for the next generation of junior faculty.


  • Discuss resources needed for faculty development in research, education, and clinical career paths.

  • Discuss role of mentorship in faculty development.

  • Discuss setting of expectations for early career work and advancement.
