Dean of the Duke University School of Medicine Nancy C. Andrews, MD, PhD, announced to staff on Wednesday that 38 School of Medicine faculty members have been named Duke Health Scholars and Duke Health Fellows. Ten of the named Duke Health Scholars and Duke Health Fellows are affiliated with Duke Cancer Institute.
The aim of this inaugural program, according to the announcement, “is to support the research efforts and enhance the academic success of early to mid-career clinician-scientists in School of Medicine clinical departments.”
“Receipt of these awards recognizes both past achievements and future potential for continued success as clinician-scientists,” Andrews wrote.
Award recipients were nominated by their department chairs and selected through peer review. Duke Health Scholars are generally more established and will receive substantial awards to expand their research in new directions. Duke Health Fellows will receive a smaller research discretionary fund and expert mentoring tailored to their interests and career aspirations.
