Early Career Development Award

The objective of this award is to provide start-up funding to orthopaedic trauma surgeons within 5 years of completion of their orthopaedic trauma fellowship (unless a military service obligation delayed the start of academic practice) who have demonstrated commitment and early success in their work environment.  The funding would support feasible research that could be completed within the 2-years award and could be part of a larger body of work.  Both laboratory and clinical projects (e.g., outcome studies) are suitable, but in either, case the clinical trauma relevance must be explicitly and clearly described.  Awardees would also be expected to engage with the AO Trauma North America Research Committee and recipients of other awards to develop camaraderie and share knowledge and experiences with other young researchers.

Eligibility

The principal investigator (PI) must be an orthopedic trauma surgeon within 5 years of orthopedic trauma fellowship completion (unless military service obligations have delayed the start of academic practice) in the United States or Canada and a member of AO Trauma.

Application

  1. CV
