Explore the possibilities of a fulfilling career combining your clinical practice with health research.

Our Life as a Clinician-Scientist symposia are designed to inspire junior doctors, medical, health and sciences students, and early career researchers to pursue a career as a clinician-scientist.

 

What is a clinician-scientist?

Clinician-scientists combine clinical practice with health research, allowing them to take their insights from working with patients to answer fundamental scientific questions and ultimately improve patient care.

The symposium offers a unique platform to meet leading experts in the field and learn about the many pathways to this exciting career.

Our Fellows, alongside other senior, mid- and early-career researchers, will share their stories about their unique combination of clinical medicine and science, and how to master the skills necessary to succeed.
