Funding is needed in all subspecialties

OMeGA has awarded 679 fellowship grants in 9 subspecialty categories, 160 residency grants, and 45 residency core competency innovation grants in 9 years.  There were many more meritorious applications that were unfunded.

For the 2017-2018 academic year, fellowship grants as a percentage of total amount requested by category ranged from 7.18% to 30.08%; Orthopaedic Sports Medicine, Foot & Ankle, and Hand & Upper Extremity are subspecialties where OMeGA was only able to fund a small percentage of the applications received.

Please get involved and support orthopaedic GME by donating to OMeGA.
