Funding is needed in all sub-specialties

OMeGA has awarded 553 fellowship grants in 9 subspecialty categories, 160 residency grants, and 45 residency core competency innovation grants in 8 years.  There were many more meritorious applications that were unfunded. In fact, only 44.80% of requestors have received OMeGA grants; we know the need for additional donors is great.

For the 2016-2017 academic year, fellowship grants as a percentage of total amount requested by category ranged from 2.18% to 33.59%; 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.
