Physician-Scientist, Academician and Published Research Author


Based largely on interest and preference, there are physician-scientists who are engaged in the dual work of being a clinician and researcher. Some of them have the added responsibility of also being academicians or members of medical faculties. The article, “Physician as a Clinician, Researcher and Academician” in this JMUST issue demonstrates the importance of organizational support and collaboration for physicians. The doctor has multiple roles to navigate through three settings: clinics, research centers, and classrooms to fulfill the mission of better public health. Research and dissemination of findings through publication are almost sine qua non when the physician blends the roles of clinician, researcher, and academician. Within the purview of translational research, the clinician is informed and applies the knowledge base for better patient care.
