What does a Clinical Professor do?
Clinical professors are college professors who provide instruction in a clinical environment and generally are employed in a full-time position. They are commonly found in a medical school or research institution. They perform a range of treatment and evaluation tasks while demonstrating proper technique and protocol to students or trainees. They mentor, advise, and evaluate students and also conduct research, which may appear in academic journals or other publications.
Clinical professors typically have a doctorate degree, M.D., or a comparable advanced degree specific to their area of practice. They must also possess all required licenses and credentials required to practice in their state. Some institutions prefer professors who have an extensive background of professional practice in their field. Strong research skills and experience or interest in teaching are also important.
