The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario (HSFO) Clinician Scientist Program is unique in that it is targeted to a wide variety of health care clinicians, including
nurses, pharmacists, physicians, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, registered dietitians, and respiratory therapists.

The program has two phases: Phase I provides stipend support for up to three years for junior Clinician Scientists. No more than 3 years must have elapsed since the date of the Phase I applicant's first academic appointment and the proposed start date of the award. Phase II provides a contribution to stipend support for up to three years for Clinician Scientists where no more than seven years have elapsed since their first academic appointment.
