Increased competition for research funding requires that clinical and health services researchers be focused and efficient if they are to sustain their research programs over their careers. Developing these skills is paramount for trainees and junior faculty. Although career development issues related to overall gestalt concerns, general career building advice, and strategies for obtaining funding have been previously addressed, there has been little published about strategies for maximizing one's focus and efficiency as a clinical or health services researcher. In this article, the authors offer a set of such strategies for junior investigators.
