The Queen’s University Clinician Investigator Program (CIP) is an intensive, research-based postgraduate medical education program accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC). It aims to develop the next generation of Clinician Scientist research leaders who will have the skill sets to achieve broad-based excellence not only in research but also as clinicians, supervisors/mentors, teachers and academics in general.
"One of our missions at Queen's is to train academic clinicians. Academic clinicians need to be equipped in two fundamental ways; for their job in looking after patients, and for their job in producing scholarship. The CIP program enables residents to dedicate concentrated periods of study to preparing them for their job as scholars, in the rich environment of our university and hospitals."
