Thirty-six Faculty Members Named Duke Health Scholars and Fellows

Friday, November 11, 2016


Thirty-six School of Medicine faculty members have been named Duke Health Scholars and Duke Health Fellows.

This inaugural program was created with a transfer of funds from the Duke University Health System. Its aim is to support the research efforts and enhance the academic success of early to mid-career clinician-scientists in School of Medicine clinical departments. 

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. 

Award recipients were nominated by their department chairs and selected through peer review. Receipt of these awards recognizes both past achievements and future potential for continued success as clinician-scientists.
