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.
