Hello,

If any of you have applied for an academic position asfter residency:

Do you include research awards and special research distinctions obtained in medical school on your C.V.?

Besides publications anything else that should be included in a C.V. for a research position?

Thanks

I serve on a faculty appointment and promotions committee. Often, academic institutions will tell you what they want on your appointment CV or give you a format to follow. In addition to the usual record of your past (beginning with undergraduate institution), and publications, it would be common on a CV for a first appointment after residency to include:

-Research presentations at regional or national meetings.
- Any international programs you might have participated in during medical school or residency.
-Research awards, honors, etc
-ALL FUNDING received related to your research, even if it was just a travel award to Experimental Biology meeting or something like that.
- Any teaching or mentoring you did at the medical school or residency level
- Significant public/community service performed at the medical school or residency level. This wouldn't include things like "served as AMSA chair for the homeless as a MS-2", but might include "PGY-2, volunteered 10 hrs/mo at planned parenthood."

As your academic career moves along, you'll likely leave some of the things that happened in med school off of your CV, just like you left many of the things you did in college off your residency applications, but important medical school contributions are likely to be worth including on your CV for a first post-residency application.

Note that CV's at this level are not like AMCAS or even ERAS. The style, even when specified by the institution tends to be a bit open to interpretation, and you'll rarely if ever be criticized for putting in too much detail.

Of all of the above categories, it is the funding and national presentations that will be noted most in early career CV's along of course with publications.
