July 2020

In the medical profession, teaching has always been a routine expectation for practicing physicians. While this remains true today, in recent years, we have seen the emergence of a well-defined career pathway for those practicing physicians who want to focus on education: the clinician educator. This is a physician who is highly active in the practice of teaching, science of learning, service as a role model for young physicians, and leading educational programs. In nephrology, one can have a fruitful and fulfilling career as a lifelong clinician educator. As career interest in our specialty wanes, the clinician educator is the professional well suited to reverse this trend. In this article, we will further define the clinician educator and map out a pathway of skills needed to thrive in this rewarding career. We also provide recommendations to both educators and leaders to ensure the clinician educator pathway continues to grow.
