We wanted to identify what factors promote career development in patient-oriented clinical research (POCR).
We used a survey questionnaire covering areas relevant to the training of subspecialty fellows and the career development of POCR faculty.
Pursuit of an academic career after fellowship correlated with completion of a clinical project, availability of a clinical research training program, opportunity to earn academic credit, faculty mentorship, and obtaining independent career development funding. Successful faculty career development in POCR was closely correlated with excellent morale and adequate protected time for academic pursuits.
Specific academic environmental factors positively influence success in POCR hematology/oncology fellowship training and faculty career development.
