Only 1.5% of medical doctors are engaged in scientific research. It's time (long overdue) to do something about that. by Mukesh Jain and colleagues
Less than 1% of all physicians currently pursue research towards our next gen cures and prophylactics. We. Need. More. Doctors. Who. Are. Scientists.
The physician-scientist is a dying breed in biomedical research. and support training of Urologists and PhDs to advance research careers in benign & maligant URO disease but more support is needed
Physician scientists have made some huge breakthroughs.... yet it is a dying breed...
Grateful for programs like K12 and mentors like that still believe in the physician-scientist dream.
