Abstract

Academic generalists are unique and important members of the pediatric landscape.1 Academic general pediatrics (AGP) is not considered a subspecialty, because it adheres to generalist values and embraces a wide range of clinical activities. Nonetheless, academic generalists engage in important scholarly efforts, contribute extensively to the education of new pediatricians, and must be prepared to survive in academia. Academic general pediatric faculty positions are subject to the same appointment and promotion requirements as those of subspecialist faculty.
