The OrthoCarolina Foundation seeks to support educational programs that improve the quality of healthcare at multiple levels. That is why we currently support several ongoing educational programs: an international training fellowship, an allied health scholarship, an orthopedic sports trainer education program as well as numerous community health and education initiatives. While the initial projects have been related to musculoskeletal care, the Foundation invites innovative proposals from all areas of healthcare education that improve the quality of health in our community and beyond.
International Fellowship Program
The International Fellows program offers practicing orthopedic surgeons from developing countries a four- to six-week mini-fellowship at OrthoCarolina.
Community Healthcare & Education
We support local community groups by provind funding for educational materials for groups in need. The funding covers a range of needs, from books and supplies to computers and scholarships.
Allied Health Scholarship
Provides scholarship funding for Allied Health Students training in surgical nursing and/or physical therapy.
Trainer Education Program
The Ortho Carolina Foundation has committed funds in the form of a Grant in an effort to facilitate the recruitment of Licensed/Certified Athletic Trainers to the state of North Carolina and our region.
