Acumed proudly provides funding to support medical education

We believe supporting medical education is one of the most important ways Acumed can assist the healthcare community in providing positive patient outcomes. Acumed is proud to contribute to medical education programs that promote scientific knowledge, medical advancement, and the delivery of efficient healthcare through our educational grant program.

Please note: If interested in requesting funds for a research proposal, please visit our Collaborative Research Opportunities page.

Acumed educational grants are offered in two general categories:

Professional Medical Education Grants

Professional Medical Education Grants provide funding for independent medical educational programs for health care professionals, including congresses, conferences, symposiums, or courses, with or without labs, that are sponsored by professional medical associations, societies, or continuing education providers and academic institution labs. This includes support requested for cadaveric labs intended to educate fellows or residents at an academic institution.

Acumed does not provide grants to individual health care professionals (HCPs) or to HCPs in training and does not provide grants that are earmarked for the benefit of individual HCPs or HCPs in training.  Accordingly, Acumed will not consider grant requests earmarked for individual HCPs or HCPs in training.

Fellowship Grants

Fellowship grants are available to accredited orthopaedic academic programs. Fellowship Grants support clinical orthopaedic fellowship programs and may be used to subsidize a clinical fellow. Programs can request preapproval of other direct educational expenses at if subsidizing a clinical fellow is not possible. Acumed’s intent is to encourage the highest quality academic programs to best advance the orthopaedic profession. Applications are reviewed against established objective criteria and not on the use, order, or purchase of any products or services of Acumed. Grant recipient institutions must represent and warrant that the receipt of funds will not affect professional judgment. To manage our budget and to ensure Acumed can fund as many worthwhile programs as possible, we limit the awarding of Fellowship Grants to once per calendar year.

Submission deadline: To be considered, the completed application, including all required documentation, must be submitted by April 15th. Applications submitted after the April 15th deadline will be held for the following year’s review cycle. Applicants will receive grant notifications by May 30th. If you have any questions, please contact
