A critical evaluation of the BIH Charité (Junior) Clinician Scientist Program

Start of the project: 01-Jun-2019 - End of the project: 31-Mar-2021

Clinician Scientist Programs take center stage in training young doctors in Germany. The German Research Foundation (DFG) published its recommendations towards the integration of research training programs for clinician scientists (DFG, April 2015) and thereby pushed its role within the German university landscape. Despite the growing numbers of Clinician Scientist Programs, a common ground for training Clinician Scientists is needed in the form of adequate quality standards: Clinician Scientist Programs vary in length, amount of research time provided, application requirements, etc. Therefore, the DZHW and the BIH Biomedical Innovation Academy perform an evaluation study based on qualitative and quantitative methods in order to survey and improve the quality of training at the Charité BIH Clinician Scientist Program. The results of this study will contribute to the overall development and structure of Clinician Scientist Programs in Germany.
