Zimmer Orthopaedic Career Development Awards

The goal of this program is to advance the scientific and/or clinical training of new orthopaedic surgeons who have a clinical or scientific interest in total joint surgery and/or trauma treatment.

Awards include, but are not limited to, support for an individual receiving training or pursuing investigation, support for travel that furthers training or investigation, or support to provide for special resources required to advance training or investigation.

The candidate and the sponsoring institution will develop the specific training and/or research plan. For the second year, Zimmer has added two new awards. Minority and female surgeons are encouraged to apply for awards reviewed and selected by members of the J. Robert Gladden and Ruth Jackson Orthopaedic Societies.
