Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Steven T. Herron, MD (Assurance Health and Wellness)
Description: With chapter topics ranging from preparing for a career in academic psychiatry to evaluating clinical research studies, this book outlines many of the tips current academicians wish they had been told when starting their journey in academia.
Purpose: The authors hope this book will condense vast expertise and experience in the area of academic psychiatry into a resource to "save you valuable time so that you may be effective, experience joy, and find success in your professional life."
Audience: While useful for anyone interested in understanding the advantages and disadvantages of a position in an academic institution, this book is focused mainly on those wishing to pursue or enhance their current experience in academic psychiatry.
Features: This book offers strategies in a wide range of topics beginning with preparation for an academic career and continuing through to becoming a more valued faculty member by enhancing your educational, academic, and professional skills. Each chapter ends with sections titled "Smart Strategies" and "Questions to Discuss with a Mentor or Colleague," providing unique insight and advice for particular areas of interest or further exploration.
Assessment: Given the unique nature of the topic, it is difficult to think of anther title so devoted to the advancement of an individual's career in academic psychiatry that it provides a succinct outline for the process. With the changing face of academia, challenges consistently arise creating a constant need for flexibility and creativity within the structure of an academic institution. This book should assist those interested in navigating the seemingly uncharted waters of establishing oneself in the field of academia, as well as those attempting to achieve further goals, such as obtaining promotions and tenure. While each institution is unique and has its own challenges, the broad strokes presented should enable improvement in skills, and possibly, one's standing within a department.
