Barwon Health CEO Frances Diver said the candidates would help create opportunities in new technologies.

“Clinician PhDs play a vital role in bridging the translation gap, which in turn improves health service efficiency and patient outcomes,” she said.

“They are also integral to a culture of innovation and excellence which will ensure we are building the healthcare workforce of the future.”

The health authority and university have been working together for nearly two decades.

The Clinician Scientist Pathway will be open to medical, nursing, midwifery and allied health clinicians.
