Robert B. Taylor, MD, has edited this book that introduces physicians and clinicians to an academic career in the health professions. Written from the clinician's viewpoint, it guides readers who are considering or who have recently embarked upon such a career through the essentials. Taylor's approach is practical and well rounded. He integrates evidence-based information from the medical literature with anecdotes from contributors noted for their success in a spectrum of disciplines at top academic medical centers. Taylor addresses the career decision-making process, job hunting, and life in academia. He also focuses on skills for success-from teaching to grant writing. Advice on clinical practice, career management, and the work/life balance is plentiful. The book dispels common myths and outlines errors to avoid. Differences in expectations and culture among teaching hospitals, medical schools, and academic medical centers are considered throughout. Sources for more information are provided as well.
