Orthopaedic community joins forces to rally support for orthopaedic GME

In 2020, OMeGA, AAOS, OREF, AOA and 20 other orthopaedic societies joined together to approve and sign the sixth US letter to industry to encourage support for graduate medical education (GME).  Industry support of quality orthopaedic residency and fellowship programs is critical to secure the future of the orthopaedic profession.  To demonstrate the crucial need for nonconflicted, merit-based funding provided by OMeGA GME grants, and to enlist help from industry, this letter was sent to current and potential supporters of OMeGA.  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 act on behalf of orthopaedic patients and the orthopaedic educational system.

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 its first ten years OMeGA has received 2,084 applications for residency and fellowship support, and requests from meritorious programs continue to grow.
