Transitioning between Clerkship Directors
Soltys, Stephen M.; Pary, Robert J.; Robinson, Stephen W.; Markwell, Stephen J.
Academic Psychiatry, v35 n2 p114-117 Mar-Apr 2011
Objective: The authors report on succession-planning for mid-level academic positions. Method: The authors describe the process of succession-planning between clerkship directors and the smooth transition resulting in one case. Results: Gradually transitioning allowed a new faculty person to assume the clerkship-director position with minimal disruption of the clerkship. The respectful treatment of the exiting clerkship director encouraged other faculty to discuss future plans with the Chair, facilitating strategic planning. Conclusion: The authors stress the need to study quantitatively the effect of transitions on training.
