Young physicians are invited to apply for the 3-year Clinician Scientist program of the Leipzig University funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG).
The combined clinical and scientific program focusses on translational research in the field of modern diseases (e.g. metabolism, obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, cardiometabolic complications, eating disorders). Investigating non-communicable “Modern Diseases” is a central topic of the Faculty of Medicine of the Leipzig University. The aim of MD-LEICS is to promote Clinician Scientists in modern diseases through protected research time (50-75%) and an attractive structured curriculum for interdisciplinary clinical and scientific qualification. The research time is approved as Residency and Fellowship Training (30 out of 36 months) by the State Chamber of Physicians of Saxony (Ärztekammer).
