Intensive summer program helps physicians build clinical research careers

The authors note that the number of physician investigators is dropping nationally due to factors such as heavy educational debt, the lengthy training required, and the challenges of securing grant funding along with time to conduct research. But at the same time, research focused on translating basic scientific discoveries into clinical treatments is more important than ever.
