Faculty clinician-educator tracks have become increasingly common at US academic medical centers. Although many radiology faculty members belong to such tracks, there is little training in radiology residencies to prepare residents to take on these roles. The authors present a summary of a novel radiology residency clinician-educator pathway developed and piloted at their institution. The key components of the pathway include protected time to work on a substantive education project and a small number of high-quality didactic lectures. Publication or presentation in some form is expected. The pathway includes regular mentorship from highly regarded clinician-educators, as well as didactic training in education techniques and skills. A formal application process was established, as were methods of evaluation during and after the experience.
