2020 AUPN Fall Chairs Session: How to Foster the Development of Junior Faculty
Developing the careers of junior faculty is an important responsibility for chairs, which has become more challenging in recent years. For research-focused faculty, the major issue may be protecting research time before they obtain grant funding, while for clinically intensive faculty, there may be little opportunity for academic accomplishment and promotion. Education-focused faculty may find it difficult to support their education effort. Additional concerns may be non-traditional and part-time roles, adjunct faculty, career interruptions while raising families, and perceived differences in career goals among millennials, This session will explore strategies for promoting successful careers for the next generation of junior faculty
2018 Education Special Interest Group (SIG): Mentoring
Mentorship is an essential part of a successful career, but it is not always available or effectively implemented. Mentorship at all levels of the professional continuum should occur, including medical and graduate students, residents, fellows, and faculty members. The 2018 Education SIG will present an overview of what constitutes effective mentorship, followed by succinct presentations about mentorship at various career levels including residency, junior faculty, and senior leadership. Special consideration will be given to the mentorship of women and minorities, as well as the role of the mentee in this process. A lively discussion is expected to follow these presentations.
