This program is designed to facilitate the recruitment of qualified researchers seeking to begin or continue an independent career in health-care research. With this program, the FRQS intends to promote continuity in health research in Québec and ensure that high-calibre scientists are available to meet the needs of universities, hospitals and industries.

Applicants must hold a doctorate in research or a professional degree in a health-related field at the doctoral level and work as full-time researchers (at least 75% of their working hours). This program is divided into three research areas: 1) basic research; 2) clinical and epidemiological research; and 3) research on health and society.
