Begin with the end in mind
Basic scientists and physician-scientists are evaluated according to the same promotion guidelines. (See box to the right) However, physician-scientists are provided an additional three years in recognition of their clinical responsibilities.
Keeping these promotion standards in mind, mentors can help mentees evaluate whether they are making sufficient progress toward promotion.
All tenure track faculty will benefit from the Basic Scientists section . Additional material, specifically for physician-scientists, follows the Basic Scientists section.
