The Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation (OREF) and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) are soliciting manuscripts for the 2024 OREF Clinical Research Award. One $20,000 OREF award will be bestowed, provided manuscripts of requisite quality are submitted.

This award recognizes outstanding clinical research related directly to musculoskeletal disease or injury. Manuscripts should represent a large body of cohesive scientific work generally reflecting years of investigation. 

The winning paper is presented by the author at the Orthopaedic Research Society's annual meeting, and the award is presented to the recipient by an OREF representative at the Academy's annual meeting during the Kappa Delta Award presentations.

Manuscripts may be submitted by members (or candidate members) of the AAOS, ORS, Canadian Orthopaedic Association (COA), or Canadian Orthopaedic Research Society (CORS).

Please note that the application form also includes the option to apply for three Kappa Delta Awards. Applicants may apply for one or more of those awards as well as the OREF award. Please be sure to check the box for the OREF Clinical Research Award.

Manuscript submissions are due July 1, 2023. For more information, visit the AAOS website.
