In November 2010, a workshop was convened in Toronto with the goal to address the challenge of creating sustainable and stable career paths for health clinician-scientists (defined as any clinician-scientists other than physicians) in academic health science centres. The workshop was sponsored by The Hospital for Sick Children and the Canadian Child and Youth Health Coalition (CCYHC) with a meeting grant (MHD106026) from The Canadian Institutes for Health Research (CIHR) and funding from the CCYHC.
Dr. Bonnie Stevens and Gwen Burrows from The Hospital for Sick Children and Dr. Stephanie Atkinson from McMaster University were the key organizers. Please find below a link to the full report from the symposium "Health Clinician-Scientists in Academic Health Science Centres: Protecting an Endangered Species".
