CIHR Embedded Clinician Scientist
The Embedded Clinician Scientist Award was developed to enable healthcare innovation through the support of clinical leadership. The award is particularly oriented towards improving patient experience and outcomes and quality of life for those with chronic conditions. The award gives early and mid-career regulated health professionals who are clinicians the protected time they need to conduct research that will lead to positive change. Applicants develop a partnership with a health system organization, e.g., a hospital, to facilitate their program of clinical research. 2016 was the first year the award was offered, and Bloomberg Nursing is delighted one of our researchers is one of the recipients.
