The objective of this programme is to nurture promising young clinicians by supporting them with seed funding and training funds to embark on their research.
Through mentoring and multi-faceted support system, this programme aims to provide junior clinicians the necessary foundation and conducive milieu to pursue a research career via the NUHS Clinician Scientist track, eventually groomed to clinch external competitive grants including the NMRC Clinician Scientist Award and Transition Award.
The Grant Funding is $15,000 and this grant is open to Residents, Registrars and Medical Officers in NUHS.
