2018 OTA Humanitarian Scholarship Campaign

Share

Many orthopaedic trauma surgeons live and work in high income countries and are fortunate to have outstanding educational opportunities, training, research and access to state-of-the-art medical resources and hospitals. It is because of these opportunities we consistently improve patient care.  But there are many young surgeons in low-middle income countries who do not have the same opportunities and resources.

OTA has established a new Humanitarian Scholarship Effort designed to provide orthopaedic trauma education for young surgeons from low-middle income countries.  Scholarships will be awarded at $5,000 each covering the recipients travel, room and board, attendance to the OTA Annual Meeting and the opportunity to participate in an observership at a U.S. Institution with an OTA member serving as a mentor during the visit.  Our goal is to provide two scholarships annually.

This is a great way to invest in our global musculoskeletal future, found in our own backyard.  Supporting the OTA Humanitarian Scholarship program recognizes and empowers academic surgeons from Low-Middle Income Countries.  This has a sustainable impact!  All contributions matter, whether $1,000 or $25.00.  Thank you.
