Handbook For Pharmacy Educators: Getting Adjusted As A New Pharmacy Faculty Member


What can senior pharmacy faculty do to help their junior colleagues succeed? The Handbook for Pharmacy Educators: Getting Adjusted as a New Pharmacy Faculty Member gives voice to junior pharmacy faculty members who present their personal accounts of their experiences on the job. These six junior faculty, representing the basic, administrative, and clinical sciences, share their lessons learned, give advice on what to do (and what NOT to do) as a new faculty member, and relate the triumphs and challenges they met along the way. For balance, a senior faculty member with experience in both teaching and research environments shares his thoughts on what the other authors have to say. From the editors: ?Despite the existence of a couple of excellent references in this area, there has not been any previous work that takes this approach?that is, of allowing junior faculty, representing both teaching and research institutions, to share `memoirs? of their own unique experiences. We hope that this approach will ease the way for new faculty members and provide senior faculty, deans, and administrators who are long removed from new faculty status a better understanding of the hurdles that new faculty must clear today. In gaining this understanding, they may become even better advisors, mentors, and administrators.? The Handbook for Pharmacy Educators: Getting Adjusted as a New Pharmacy Faculty Member will help new faculty address the questions that start with ?how,? like, How can I: be sure to start my teaching out on the right foot? figure out which teaching strategies are most appropriate? establish and develop good rapport with my students? begin to establish mutually beneficial relationships with my colleagues? socialize and make new friends in my new environment? gain support for my research agenda? learn what resources are available to me? find out about performance appraisals and rewards? handle or appreciate the extra pressures facing faculty who don?t happen to be white males?
