OREF refocuses on research, OMeGA renews commitment to education
OMeGA Medical Grants Association (OMeGA) and Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation (OREF) issued a joint announcement in late May describing how the two independent organizations have coordinated to more efficiently advance orthopaedics across all sub-specialties.
OMeGA will continue to focus on funding orthopaedic allopathic and osteopathic GME programs across all sub-specialties, without conflicts or bias. OREF is refocusing on three areas of orthopaedic research: investigator-driven, topic-driven and donor-directed research. This separation will resolve redundancy and inefficiency to result in what is truly best for the orthopaedic profession. Read the entire joint OMeGA/OREF announcement.
