The Doris Duke Clinical Research Fellowship Program, established in 2000, is a 12–month program designed to encourage medical students to pursue careers in clinical research by giving exceptional students the opportunity to take a year to experience clinical research first hand.
The Clinical Research Fellowship was founded on the principle that training physician-scientists in clinical research will increase the pace of discovery of new approaches to diagnosis and treatment of disease. The translation of advances in basic science to new strategies for understanding the pathophysiology of disease requires the participation of physician-scientists who are conducting clinical research.
