The academic physician-investigator faces many challenges.
Obtaining funding to support research is the greatest impediment.
The National Institutes of Health, the single largest source of grants for the academic physician-investigator, approved only 14.2% of new investigator grant applications in 1990, compared with 40% in 1965 and 1975.
Physicians submitted 25% of all applications, and they have priority scores similar to those applications submiked by investigators with PhD degrees.
The 14.2% funding rate for new investigator-initiated grants is considerably less than the 56% success rate of amended renewal investigator-initiated grants.
These trends in funding can be discouraging to the new physician-investigator.
