The Doris Duke Distinguished Clinical Scientist Award (DCSA) recognizes outstanding mid-career physician-scientists who are applying the latest scientific advances to the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and cure of disease, and enables them to support and mentor the next generation of physician-scientists conducting clinical research.

All nominees must:

  • Be a physician-scientist with an established translational clinical research program in any disease area;
  • Have received an MD or a foreign equivalent from an accredited institution;
  • Be working in a US degree-granting institution not necessarily a US citizen;
  • Have a full-time university faculty appointment at least at the level of Associate Professor or its equivalent as of January 1, 2008;
  • Have been appointed to their first full-time faculty-level position no earlier than January 1, 1993. (All full-time post-fellowship instructor-level positions will be considered full-time faculty-level appointments.)
