Practicing physicians may follow the desire to enter full-time academic medicine as a clinician-educator. There is a paucity of literature to inform the clinician with a successful framework in transitioning to all the necessary roles encountered as a faculty member in medical education. This article aims to provide clinicians with recommendations for their first year affording a smooth and successful transition. Given the multiple challenges faced in transitioning from clinical practice to medical education, these perspectives, while not typically covered in junior faculty development programs, are proposed for the clinician to consider as they enter into this new sphere of practice.
