The Canadian Orthopaedic Foundation invites applications for:
J. Édouard Samson Award
The premier award for orthopaedic research in Canada, the J. Édouard Samson Award, recognizes the best career orthopaedic research over a period of five (5) years or more at a Canadian centre. This $30,000 award is intended to promote further research by the recipient. The recipient will present his/her research at the Annual General Meeting of the Canadian Orthopaedic Association (presentation opportunity to be determined). The award consists of an educational grant and a personal research grant to be used by the recipient at the Canadian institution where he/she currently resides.
CSES Research Grant
In collaboration with the Canadian Shoulder and Elbow Society, the Canadian Orthopaedic Foundation established the CSES Research Grant to support and encourage orthopaedic surgeons to conduct collaborative shoulder or elbow research. The total number of awards each year will be variable, based on available funding. Individual awards are in the amount of up to $20,000.
Community Innovation Award
The Community Innovation Award celebrates community-based surgeons and research studies dedicated to improving patient care or musculoskeletal health in their community. There are many Canadian orthopaedic surgeons interested in research working in the community. These community surgeons are not academics, do not have a research history, and do not have research staff, but may have an academic appointment to teach on an occasional basis. When a surgeon does not have an academic appointment or a research history, it can be difficult for these surgeons to obtain funding for their innovative research ideas. This program fills a gap in the research landscape in Canada, encouraging community orthopaedic researchers to bring their research ideas to fruition. Individual awards are in the amount of up to $15,000.
