OSCF Announces Three New Programs for Residents and Junior Faculty
This spring, Osteo Science Foundation’s Board of Directors is excited to announce three brand-new programs, two of which are offered exclusively for Oral and CranioMaxillofacial surgery residents. The submission period for all programs, including our existing Peter Geistlich Research Award, is April 1 – June 1, 2016. All applications and proposals must be completed online at www.osteoscience.org.
Clinical Observership Program
Osteo Science Foundation is pleased to offer this new program designed especially for residents interested in a private practice experience. This unique and exciting opportunity offers intensive, individualized training with leading practitioners in the field of Oral and CranioMaxillofacial surgery. Residents are carefully matched with participating senior clinicians for a two to four-week assignment. Drs. Jay Malmquist, Peter Moy and Daniel Spagnoli will be the first clinician mentors in this program.
For all of our new and existing research projects, projects must be relevant to Osteo Science Foundation’s mission of advancing hard and soft tissue regeneration in Oral and CranioMaxillofacial surgery.
Philip J. Boyne Junior Faculty Research Awards
Created in memory of Dr. Philip J. Boyne, world famous oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Osteo Science Foundation will offer an annual research award exclusively designated for junior faculty. The maximum award is $25,000 per year, with a one or two-year project duration, totaling a maximum of $50,000 (inclusive of indirect costs, which are capped at 10%). Faculty must be within the first five years of their first faculty appointment at the start of the research project. Chief residents who will be junior faculty by the time of award notification, August 1, may also apply.
