Academic global pulmonary/critical care medicine (PCCM) remains a relatively novel concept not fully embraced by all training programs, so PCCM early-career professionals may have little guidance in building successful careers in this field. To highlight various approaches used by current PCCM faculty to incorporate global health into their academic careers, speakers from a global health careers mini symposia held at the 2017 and 2018 American Thoracic Society International Conferences were invited to submit perspectives reflecting on academic PCCM and global health. The collection of essays was collated into a single manuscript. Eight current global PCCM faculty from diverse geographic and professional backgrounds provide experiential guidance for early-career professionals interested in global academic PCCM. Trainees and junior faculty interested in academic global PCCM will find innumerable obstacles to developing this non-traditional career pathway, but there exist diverse pathways to success.
