Advisory Committee to the Director

Physician-Scientist Workforce

Working Group Reports


Develop approaches that can inform decisions about the development of U.S. physician-scientist biomedical workforce for a variety of positions that will advance science and promote health. Analyze the current composition and size of the physician-scientist biomedical workforce to understand the consequences and associated impacts of current funding policies of NIH and other analogous entities on clinicians' decisions to engage in research. Assess present and future needs and career opportunities available to support physician-scientist trainees in diverse biomedical research sectors. Further identify the incentives and barriers to clinicians entering and continuing to engage in scientific activities.

The committee will make recommendations for actions that NIH should take to support a sustainable and diverse clinical research infrastructure, as well as recommendations for actions needed by other relevant stakeholders.
