The funding exempts the doctors from their clinical work so they can instead dedicate themselves to research.

The program is generally open to doctors beginning their second year of residency.

The scope and duration of this research depends on the funding line. The research time is spent in the doctor's own clinic, with the exception of the Full Research funding line.

The program encompasses four funding lines:

  1. Starter
  2. Full Researcher
  3. Foreign Returnees
  4. Advanced

Applicants can decide for which funding line they would like to apply. It is also possible to apply for multiple, consecutive funding lines.
