Resident Research Project Grant


The objective of the OREF Resident Research Project Grant is to provide funding to residents who are interested in research. Grants of $5,000 for one year will be considered for orthopaedic surgery residents in approved orthopaedic programs to cover research expenses, but not salary or travel. The work should clearly be achievable by the resident as a free-standing project even when it is a part of a larger work. Both laboratory and clinical projects (e.g., outcome studies) are suitable, but in either case clinical relevance must be explicitly and clearly described. The resident will learn to write a competitive research proposal, and will develop a relationship with a mentor who has research experience and has mentored others. One or more grants may be reserved for members of the Orthopaedic Research Society (ORS).
