Abstract/Notes Excerpt: Research is needed in any health care profession to advance knowledge and find more effective and safer ways to help patients. There is no exception for chiropractic. It is necessary to conduct both basic biological research and clinical research to link discoveries with practice.1 For this to occur however, an adequate number of trained and committed researchers is required as is the appropriate infrastructure and funding. Working in collaborative networks may help as well.2 The traditional avenue to become an independent researcher is to undertake postgraduate research training and earn a PhD and for many, to get a postdoctoral fellowship. Combining formal clinical and research training has the advantage of providing one with an overview of both worlds and an in-depth understanding of the needs in a specific area.3 Perhaps one of the greatest challenges in all health professions is developing a sufficient pool of clinician-scientists to meet the research needs of that profession.
