An academic research coach (ARC) focuses on health science professors just getting started in an academic career. Clinical faculty and professionals have vast experience in clinical environments; however, they need a bit more coaching when it comes to a successful scholarship agenda. Even with novice faculty that are mentored by seasoned faculty, there’s often a lack of time and depth to fully guide a new professor. We help all faculty and departments who need support in research professional development.
According to McKinney et al1, having an ARC for medically focused faculty is effective in accomplishing meaningful scholarly activity. The study supported 63 projects which included 49 general internal medicine faculty . The ARC return on investment yielded 13 publications, 11 abstracts, four grant submissions, and seven manuscript reviews . Our coaching focuses on establishing a meaningful platform of scholarly activity for health science professors. We help you "mind the gap" between where you are and where you'd like to be with your research:
