The teaching policy is that educational institutions should encourage and facilitate research, contributing to the preparation of select minds, familiar with scientific thinking and method, giving professionals of the future the ability to think independently and critically.Hence, in the pursuit of perfection and medical-professional qualification, a new medical-scientist training program should support trainees, residents, and physicians whose work would combine research with clinical care.
