As academic medical centers increasingly deliver care in primary care settings, a new category of faculty-clinician-educators-has emerged.
Although the shift of education and patient care to outpatient settings makes the expanded role of clinician-educators necessary, it also presents challenges to clinician-educators themselves and to the institutions for which they work.
This article examines these contemporary challenges (including financial constraints, undefined processes of promotion, and limited opportunities for professional development) and suggests strategies for meeting them.
The number of clinician-educators joining the ranks of medical school faculties will probably continue to increase.
As clinician-educators seek to provide the highest-quality education and patient care in the new medical marketplace, their success will be critical to the viability of the academic centers of the future.
