Basic Science Course Scholarship

In partnership with Dr. Thomas V. Smallman and the COA Basic Science Course, the Canadian Orthopaedic Foundation 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. Cases that demonstrate the role of osteogenic markers, cytokines, growth or genetic factors in the pathophysiology of the condition are of particular interest.

One thousand dollars will be awarded annually to an orthopaedic resident in their 3rd to 5th year of training who is a member of the Canadian Orthopaedic Association and who meets the criteria as outlined in the guidelines and application documentation.
