Dwindling institutional budgets and reduced governmental support are jeopardizing or decreasing the ability to help educate the next generation of orthopaedic surgeons. As a result, according to David Attarian, MD, a member of the board of directors for the OMeGA Medical Grants Association (OMeGA), “Strong industry support is more important than ever to fund orthopaedic graduate medical education (GME) programs in North America.”

To recognize and encourage industry support for orthopaedic GME, OMeGA and specialty societies are joining forces. “Industry and orthopaedic surgeons have a long, cooperative, and constructive relationship around research and education,” said Jo Hannafin, MD, PhD, president of the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine.
