Berta-Ottenstein-Programm: applications for Clinician Scientists

29 May 2020 @ 12:00 12:01

Clinical research needs outstanding clinicians who in addition to their patient-care duties are active in research. Day-to-day patient care leaves young clinicians with little time to work on their own research projects. Thus the Faculty of Medicine launched the Berta-Ottenstein-Programme for Clinician Scientists in 2016. 

The structured qualification programme provides optimal conditions for combining scientific and clinical careers. Over the course of the three-year program, participants conduct a research project in parallel with their medical specialty training. Throughout this time they are supported by mentors. In addition, they take part in further scientific and medical training courses, as well as soft skills courses.

Target group

The programme is open to clinicians from any field of medicine. The call for applications for Track I and Track II is directed at clinicians in medical specialty training.

Principles and goals

  • Protected time for research in flexible distribution over the total funding period (50%)
  • Clinical advanced training as part of the specialist retraining (50%)
  • Individual qualification program with focus on scientific training and medical education as well as key qualifications
  • Participants profit from supervision and mentoring
  • Preparation of scientific publications
