Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

This grounded theory naturalistic study explores and analyzes the experiences of eight expert clinicians as they transitioned to academia during the first three years. Three themes (self, person, and place) and one meta-theme (cultural fit) emerged from over 13 hours of semistructured interviews. Using the information presented and the proposed model, new faculty experiences may assist educational institutions to successfully recruit and retain new full-time faculty members.
