A Primer for Career Development and Promotion: Succeeding as a Psychologist in an Academic Health Center

by: Edward Christophersen, Ph.D.,  ABPP
& Zeeshan Butt, Ph.D.


This primer outlines key considerations for psychologists who are seeking an initial faculty appointment or promotion within an academic health center. The text provides a framework for the process, along with some practical, facilitating next steps, such as the importance of getting to know how institutions work, planning early for eventual promotion, and building a case for eventual promotion via clinical service, research, teaching/ mentoring, and professional service.

This was published in our journal, the Journal of Clinical Psychology in Medical Settings: Volume 19 Issue 4, 2012.
