A Case Report on the Use of a Decision Matrix to Support the Development of Scholarship for Early Career Health Sciences Faculty
Bridgett Piernik-Yoder, PhD, OTR

Many health sciences faculty do not begin their academic careers with a history of scholarly productivity that will ensure their success in academia because they often transition to the academic setting from the clinical setting. Because scholarship is an integral aspect to success in an academic career, it is important to consider tools to support this aspect of faculty development in the health sciences. The purpose of this case report is to describe the outcomes of the development and utilization of a decision matrix to support the systematic assessment and planning of potential scholarly activities for early-career health sciences faculty. Outcomes presented in this case report indicate this type of decision matrix may be a useful tool to support faculty develop in the area of research and scholarship.
