AADR is offering a one-day pre-meeting workshop, “Key Components to Establishing an Academic Career Involving Research – Preparation, Publishing, Ethics and Professionalism,” aimed at facilitating success in an academic career for new faculty. When faculty members first start an academic position, they are often overwhelmed with the expectations associated with simultaneously establishing their teaching, clinical, and research activities. This workshop, taking place Tuesday, March 15, 2016, is designed to provide guidance to new faculty as to how to have a successful academic career in which research is a major component, including a discussion of potential conventional and alternative research funding sources. The workshop will have a special emphasis on issues that the new dental academic will face with respect to ethics and professionalism, and will include small group discussions of specific scenarios in which acting in a professional and ethical manner are addressed.

AADR/CADR Annual Meeting attendees will be able to register for this event for the added price of $100 with their meeting registration. Non-meeting attendees may register for the one-day event at $200.
