Handbook of Career Development in Academic Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences by Laura Weiss Roberts
Book DescriptionHandbook of Career Development in Academic Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences is an essential guide to everything that they don't teach in traditional medical and psychiatric training about how to begin -- and further develop -- an academic career. Covering many aspects of early career development that the authors wish they had been told about when they started their own academic careers, this book is densely packed with practical information that every academic psychiatrist or behavioral scientist can use right away. The Handbook of Career Development in Academic Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences is both a training manual and a guide for academicians in the real world. In six main sections written by 36 expert contributors, this eminently practical text covers most everything that academic faculty members do: * Getting Started -- Approaching a career in academic psychiatry, including key attributes of faculty members and strategies for academically oriented residents in psychiatry, women and minorities, and psychologists and other health professionals* Getting There -- Preparing effective curriculum vitaes, interviewing for academic positions, and evaluating offers* Once You're There -- Managing your time, creating and understanding budgets, aligning your goals with those of colleagues/department/institution, understanding and preparing for the process of academic promotion, negotiating with the chairperson, and developing ethics skills* Becoming an Educator -- Giving difficult feedback, teaching in small groups, writing test questions, conducting assessments, and writing letters of recommendation* Developing Your Academic Skills -- Conducting research, evaluating clinical research studies, publishing manuscripts, being a manuscript reviewer, navigating the grant application process, and approaching research, evaluation, and continuous quality improvement projects* Continuing to Grow Professionally -- Getting and maintaining certification, being a good mentor and colleague, networking, and creating a positive early career environment Written for a broad audience, from academic psychiatrists and psychologists, medical physicians, and private practice teachers to residents/fellows, medical students, department chairs, and deans, the unique Handbook of Career Development in Academic Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences offers helpful illustrations and extensive references, worksheets, and web resources to prepare psychiatrists and other mental health professionals for fulfilling, successful careers in both private practice and academia. Quite simply, Handbook of Career Development in Academic Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences has earned its place among the core texts for faculty development courses in psychiatry and medicine.
