This course presents a wide range of topics and information junior faculty require for success in an academic pathology department. Beginning with a description of the organization of the academic medical center and flow of funds, it covers the academic appointment process, negotiating with your chair, selecting and working with a mentor, criteria for promotion, how to organize a promotion packet and curriculum vitae, oral presentations, and general advice on manuscript preparation. The format will consist of didactic segments alternating with interactive, case-based discussions. Registrants will receive case studies for review prior to the course. The course is recommended for senior residents considering an academic career in pathology as well as early career faculty.
