- Provides funding to residents who are interested in research.
- Covers research expenses, but not salary or travel.

- 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 mentored others.
- Domestic non-profit, public and private institutions of higher education, such as hospitals, medical schools, universities and colleges.
- The applicant (PI) must be an orthopaedic surgery resident in an ACGME-Accredited orthopaedic program in the United States.
