The future of academic medicine depends on attracting motivated trainees to the academic career path. Improved understanding of academic medicine career roles and responsibilities can increase trainees’ awareness of the opportunities in academic medicine and may support development of the next generation of academic physicians.

This article analyzes a workshop that has been presented at five regional conferences targeting medical students and residents (and even new junior faculty) introducing them to the diversity of career opportunities in a career in academic medicine, and can be offered at medical schools and residency programs across the country.
