Clinician-Scientist Development Program
The future of our specialty depends in part on the productivity of clinician scientists who make important discoveries and innovations that can help the hand surgery community to continue to improve the health, well-being and function of their patients. This program began in 2003 and was developed to introduce residents to the clinician scientist timeline, to match them with senior clinician scientists to form mentor relationships, and to provide essential information for practitioners contemplating a career as a clinician scientist.
