In the ever-evolving landscape of medicine and scientific research, the role of physician-scientists has become increasingly important. Physician-scientists bridge the gap between patient care and groundbreaking research and are indispensable in advancing medical knowledge, improving patient care, driving innovation, and tackling complex healthcare challenges. However, despite their importance, recruiting physician-scientists remains a significant challenge. At the UMCG/RUG we also very much value the scientific training of our medicine students enabling them to to develop the biomedical research mindset they need to become evidence-based professionals. However, we do not know whether our current scientific training and (extracurricular) activities are effective. Do medical students who follow this educational path develop the attitudes, values, and behaviors expected of a physician-scientist? Do these students truly embody the mindset and behavior (feel, act and think) of a physician-scientist? How and why do they stay connect (or not) to research activities after the medical training? Understanding this trajectory from recruitment to graduation and beyond is fundamental to devise interventions that optimize our efforts to deliver to society the next generation of physician-scientists. This trajectory is known as professional identity formation. In this research project, we seek to uncover the fundamental values, factors, experiences & influences that shape and sustain the professional identities of medical students on their journey to becoming physician-scientist. We will explore this transformational process as they progress through their training and embark on their professional career. This research will utilize qualitative methods such as thematic analysis and grounded theory, as well as psychometrically-sound measures for quantitative analysis. The expected impact of this project includes new insights that enable us to intervene and customize the current scientific training of medicine students. Ultimately, this will contribute to the positive formation of a professional identity as a physician-scientist. Knowledge gained from this project will support the design of educational strategies aiming for the attracting, recruiting and expanding the physician-scientist workforce.

We are looking for a qualified candidate with a master’s degree in medicine or social sciences (preferably psychology or educational sciences). Candidates holding a different master’s degree, combined with a Bachelor’s degree in medicine, psychology, or other social sciences, will also be considered. You should have an interest in or direct experience with medical education and scientific training, as well as experience with research methodologies used in social and behavioral sciences. It is important that you are familiar with the concepts of professional identity formation and exhibit strong statistical skills. Additionally, you should be enthusiastic, curious, analytical, and critical. Given the international background of the research team and the collaborative nature of the research, it is essential to possess excellent English communication and collaboration skills.
