What I Wish I Had Known Before P&T…
This post is part of a series of reflections from tenured faculty. We asked them, “If you could go back in time, what piece of advice would you give yourself about the promotion & tenure process?” We hope their answers might be helpful to faculty currently working towards P&T!
Today’s respondent is Pamela K. Mason, MD, FHRS, FACC, Associate Professor of Medicine, Cardiovascular Medicine, and Program Director, Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship.
“The process is much easier if you don’t wait until the last minute. Start your CV in the official format when you join the faculty and put in a little bit of time periodically to update it. Save patient letters in a file. It’s hard to find the time to do this, but it is worth it!”
Thanks, Pamela, for your reflections!
