FNIH recognizes the critical role that clinician-scientists play in the evolution of medical practice.

The Foundation for the NIH has opened nominations for the 2nd Trailblazer Prize for Clinician-Scientists. This annual prize and $10,000 honorarium presented by FNIH recognizes the outstanding contributions of early-career clinician-scientists in the United States whose work has the potential to or has led to innovations in patient care. 

FNIH will honor the three finalists of the Trailblazer Prize and announce the winner at the FNIH annual fall board dinner in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 23.

FNIH recognizes the unique and critical role that clinician-scientists play in the evolution of medical practice. As noted in the 2014 NIH Physician-Scientist Workforce Report, these individuals play a vital role in ensuring that biomedical advances ultimately benefit patients and improve public health.
