How to Apply

Resident Clinician Scientist Training Grant

The objective of the Resident Clinician Scientist Training Grant is to prepare residents for a career with research as a major component. Clinical relevance must be clearly noted in the abstract and specific aims sections, and be obvious from the title and study design. Grants of up to $20,000 to cover research expenses, but not salary, for one year will be considered for orthopaedic surgery residents or fellows completing an orthopaedic fellowship in accredited orthopaedic programs. Within the one-year grant period, the grantee is required to have a minimum of three months dedicated research time, with six months preferred. The grantee’s time commitment must be consistent with the grantee's role on the project, and must be justified. The work should clearly be achievable by the grantee as a free-standing project even when it is a part of a larger work, and it should potentially lead to publication with the grantee as an author. Both laboratory and clinical projects (e.g., outcome studies) are suitable, but in either case clinical relevance must be explicitly and clearly described.

New Investigator Grant

This one-year grant provides up to $50,000 to advance the scientific training of the next generation of orthopaedists. Orthopaedic surgeons in approved orthopaedic residency and fellowship programs, or who have completed formal training within the last four years* may apply by submitting a proposal for an individual plan for further research investigation. Two awards will be given for Project Year 2013.

*This requirement is flexible if a sabbatical or leave of absence was taken during the candidate’s early career and will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
