COF Announces 2 Awards

Canadian Orthopaedic Foundation

The Canadian Orthopaedic Foundation is pleased to announce recipients of the following awards:

COA Basic Science Course Scholarship: Nolan Horner and Justin Murphy

The Canadian Orthopaedic Foundation is pleased to announce the recipients of the Inaugural 2021 COA Basic Science Scholarship:

Dr. Nolan Horner (McMaster University) for his case study “An Unusual Intra-articular lesion of the Hip in a 41-Year-Old female”

Dr. Justin Murphy (Memorial University of Newfoundland) for his case study “All that glitters is not gold: An atypical cartilaginous proliferative lesion is not always chondrosarcoma”

In partnership with Dr. Thomas V. Smallman and the COA Basic Science Course, the COF established the COA Basic Science Course Scholarship to create an incentive for orthopaedic residents to benefit from the process of analyzing, and preparing for presentation, the relevant aspects of a clinical case that involves either difficult diagnosis or treatment, or is a classic example of a specific disorder in the categories of disease, including the skeletal dysplasias.

Robin Richards Award for Upper Extremity Research: Madeleine Van de Kleut

The Canadian Orthopaedic Foundation is pleased to announce the recipient of the 2021 Robin Richards Award for Upper Extremity Research. Dr. Madeleine Van de Kleut from London, ON receives the award for her paper titled: “Evaluation of Humeral Stem and Glenosphere Fixation in Reverse Total Shoulder Arthroplasty: A Prospective, Randomized Clinical Trial With Two-Year Follow-Up”.

Thanks to a generous endowment fund donated by Dr. Robin Richards, this award was established to recognize the best upper extremity research submission at the Canadian Orthopaedic Association annual meeting. All papers in upper extremity research accepted for the COA meeting are eligible, and are reviewed by a COF research review panel. Although the physical COA annual meeting is cancelled, many papers were submitted prior to the pandemic, and the COF reviewed abstracts and manuscripts prior to selecting the award recipient.
