Two scholars have been selected for the 2023-2025 cohort of Duke's National Clinician Scholars Program (NCSP). The cohort represents the fifth group of interdisciplinary researchers recruited to the Duke NCSP site.
Duke is one of six sites within the National Clinician Scholars Program, a consortium of prestigious academic health care research institutions which provides training for physicians and post-doctoral nurses to become change agents driving policy-relevant research and partnerships to improve health and health care.
Generous support for next year’s cohort comes from the Duke Schools of Medicine and Nursing, the Duke Margolis Center for Health Policy, and the North Carolina Association of Local Health Directors, Region 7, building upon Duke NCSP’s ongoing partnership with Granville-Vance Public Health. The two scholars selected include:
- Stephanie Hart, PhD, NP-C
Duke School of Nursing & NCALHD, Region 7
- Ryan Kane, MD, MPH
Duke General Internal Medicine, Duke Margolis Center for Health Policy, & NCALHD, Region 7
The Duke NCSP focuses on community-based research, health services research, health policy, and implementation science across a broad range of disciplines. Scholars will build expertise in these disciplines because of the critical role they play in both improving health care access, equity, quality, and outcomes and identifying and implementing effective health care policies.
Nationally, the goal of the NCSP is to cultivate health equity, eliminate health disparities, invent new models of care, and achieve higher quality health care at a lower cost by training nurse and physician researchers who work as leaders and collaborators embedded in communities, healthcare systems, government, foundations, and think tanks in the United States and around the world.
