Nine Clinical Departments Received Support to Incentivize Clinical Research by K Awardees.
In an effort to bolster the engagement of junior clinician scientists in research, the School of Medicine (SOM) provides an incentive to departments to support the research activities of clinician scientists with K awards.
This strategic initiative is intended to provide additional resources to departments to expand the cohort of clinician scientists with an MD or MD/PhD in the SOM who are engaged in scientific research.
For Fiscal Year 2023, the School of Medicine allocated a total of $380,000 to nine departments for their faculty with externally funded K01, K08, K22, K23, K24, K26 or K99 grants.
The funding is provided for up to three years for each K recipient to offset departmental clinical obligations and promote research.
Funding will be allocated on an annual basis as part of the Forward Together strategic plan for the School of Medicine. More information can be found online.
