Viewing Clinical Research Career Development through the Lens of Social Cognitive Career Theory
Bakken, Lori L.; Byars-Winston, Angela; Wang, Min-fen
Advances in Health Sciences Education, v11 n1 p91-110 Feb 2006
Issues such as, over commitment, insufficient time, and lack of funding, threaten physicians' entry and sustainability in a research career pathway. Social cognitive career theory is presented as a conceptual framework to critically examine the limitations of the National Institutes of Health's (NIH) efforts to promote the career development of physician-scientists. Special attention is given to the unique challenges of promoting this career pathway for women and underrepresented minorities. The authors propose enhanced recommendations for the career development of physician-scientists and research questions for future studies and program development aimed at advancing the nation's efforts to promote clinical research.
