A common split is 70–80% research, 30–20% service. However, the definition of what constitutes research time is often fuzzy. Be sure that your future chair, the other faculty members, and you are on the same page with regard to your effort. Talk with the faculty and find out how much time they actually spend on their service component. Your salary is also likely to be linked to the amount of clinical service you perform.

You also need to consider that if you spend only a small amount of time a year performing your clinical duties, you may lose some of your clinical skills and it may be difficult to keep up with the latest and greatest techniques and protocols.
