Junior faculty members often face the challenge of working to establish academic careers while simultaneously managing significant care-giving responsibilities. These competing demands make it challenging to succeed in an increasingly competitive grant funding environment, and indeed can be an obstacle to retaining physician scientists at research-intensive academic institutions. To support junior faculty at this critical tipping point in their careers, the Office for Faculty and Office for Physician Scientists Development are pleased to offer the Fund to Retain Clinical Scientists at Duke. Supported by an award from the American Heart Association, Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and Dean Mary Klotman, the Fund provides supplements of up to $30,000-$50,000 per year to physician-scientists with significant care-giving responsibilities.
