New grant cycle providing CME support for fellows

OMeGA is launching a new grant cycle for the 2022-2023 academic year to provide funding to clinical fellows to attend an ACGME-accredited meeting and obtain CME credit.

  • Grants up to $2,000 will be available

  • The annual meeting of OMeGA's 27 partners will be eligible

  • Covered meetings are subject to funded categories 1

  • Covered expenses are registration (if applicable), travel, and lodging 2

  • Interested clinical fellows must complete a short application August 1-26

Email to sign up to receive more information or check back soon.

1 Covered meetings are limited to the subspecialties for which we have support. This includes 8 subspecialty categories and a non-subspecialty category that includes AAOS, AOA, ORS, RJGOS, RJOS, MSIS, ORA, and SOMOS.

2 Several societies have offered comped registration so this cost will not be incurred by the fellow grant recipient.

Subspecialty connections

OMeGA supports fellowship programs in all nine orthopaedic subspecialties. To find information and resources for each subspecialty, hover over the "Fellowship Grants and Subspecialty Pages" button on the left and click links in the drop-down menu.

Orthopaedic community joins forces to rally support for orthopaedic GME

A record 27 orthopaedic societies joined OMeGA to approve and sign the eighth joint letter to industry encouraging support for graduate medical education (GME). Nonconflicted industry support of quality orthopaedic residency and fellowship programs is critical to secure the future of the orthopaedic profession.

This letter was sent to current and potential supporters of OMeGA to demonstrate the crucial need for non conflicted, merit-based funding provided by OMeGA GME grants. The letter outlines a brief history of GME funding, defines the role OMeGA grants play in the orthopaedic GME landscape, and calls on industry to provide support to benefit the orthopaedic educational system and patients.

Corporate support broadens reach of OMeGA grants

OMeGA Medical Grants Association is the only third-party administrator of grants in all orthopaedic subspecialty categories. Since 2008, OMeGA has collaborated with corporate donors to support quality orthopaedic residency programs and fellowship education. OMeGA grants provide an objective, non-conflicted, transparent funding mechanism to assure continued funding of orthopaedic training--education that is critical to maintaining quality orthopaedic patient care. In the last 14 years, OMeGA has received 2,873 applications for residency and fellowship support, and requests from meritorious programs continue to grow.
