Career support for clinician scientists: balancing lab and clinic

When physicians conduct research in parallel to their everyday clinical work, both research and patient care benefit. However, balancing lab and clinic is challenging. For this reason, the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Münster systematically supports physicians who wish to combine their clinical career with science; this allows them the freedom to conduct research as well as fulfill their clinical responsibilities.
