Osteo Science Foundation is pleased to offer resident travel awards to provide assistance to OMFS residents to participate in the 2020 AAOMS Clinical Trials Methods Course. The award will be granted to support five (5) residents at $1,000 each.
Provide financial assistance to OMFS residents to attend the 2020 AAOMS Clinical Trials Methods Course.
The course is open to oral and maxillofacial surgeons – including residents, fellow, faculty and private practitioners – with an interest in study design. More specifically, it is intended for OMSs interested in designing a clinical trial and developing a study protocol. It also will be of value to practitioners who must critically evaluate the literature of published clinical trials and assess the merits of each trial and the implications for the care and treatment of patients. Ideally, a resident and a faculty mentor pair will attend the course. Residents also will have the opportunity to interact with course faculty and faculty from other programs. A limited number of dental students who have been accepted into an OMS residency program or those who have a strong interest in attending an OMS residency program also are invited to register.
CME/CDE will be available for participants.
