This concise, easy-to-read title addresses the wide variety of challenges that associate professors encounter in academic medicine. Derived from the broader acclaimed text, The Academic Medicine Handbook, this guidebook emphasizes cultivation of "soft" and "hard" skills and offers important insights on a range of topics, including cultivating a healthy life balance, how to manage personal finances, how to put together a promotion package, how to be a good mentor, how to lead committees, how to build a national reputation, how to understand budgets, and how to engage in strategic planning, to name just several topics covered. Associate professors are important to academic medicine-they represent the living "succession plan" for academic medicine, which has been entrusted with creating a better future for humanity. The continued career development of these individuals is crucial to their students, their colleagues, and their senior leaders. And yet, somehow, they often get stuck-finding difficulties either navigating the politics of the academy, contributing to their field on a nation al scale, or seizing leadership opportunities. The Associate Professor Guidebook: Continuing the Journey to Professor addresses all of these issues and is an indispensable resource for associate professors who seek to deliberately and strategically progress in their career.
