Department of OMFS Education and Research Fund Grants

Introduction

The Department is offering research support grants to faculty, residents, fellows, and students funded by the ERF for the academic year July 1, 2010 - June 30, 2011. The purpose of these internal grants is to stimulate the development of research projects and programs within the Department. The grants are meant to be for one year, with the possibility of renewal for a second year. Grants are also available to fund travel for residents and fellows to participate in continuing education activities or to further their research efforts and activities.

Eligibility

All OMFS faculty, residents, and fellows or students who have projects supervised by an OMFS faculty member are eligible for support. There is no deadline, and the applications can be submitted anytime. They will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis. In addition, all applicants, co-investigators, and research support staff must have completed the appropriate IRB or animal research training programs. Certificates documenting completion of the educational programs and IRB or animal research committee approval of the project must be on file with the department before funds are released.

Research Grant Application

As this program is meant to encourage and stimulate research, there will be a minimum of administrative requirements. The proposal must be submitted in writing with a budget. The turnaround time between submission and decision will be no longer than one month, unless the number of applications prevents this turnaround. The applications will be reviewed by the Department of OMFS Research Committee, composed of Drs. Troulis, Dodson, Kaban, and an additional person with expertise in the field of the proposal. An outside review will be solicited when appropriate. Categories of funding include:

  • “Seed money” for junior or senior faculty to support pilot research activities.
  • Student, resident and fellow research awards to support projects in which the student, resident or fellow is carrying out the research as a supervised PI with an OMFS faculty member. The trainee’s role in the project must be clearly delineated. The proposal needs to be submitted by the OMS faculty member functioning as the research mentor.
  • Travel awards for students, residents, and fellows to present an abstract derived from research done in the Department when no other funding is available for travel.

Research Grant Proposal Format

Faculty research mentors responsible for student, fellow, or research projects must review, approve, and submit the application electronically to oralsurgery@partners.org. Proposals submitted by mentees will be returned as administratively unresponsive to the proposal.

Maximum number of pages

5 single-spaced

Areas to address

I)     Study Purpose, Hypothesis, and Specific Aims
II)    Background
III)   Methods
IV)   Summary: This should include a timeline and overall research plan, i.e., what will be the next step for the research and for funding if this grant is successfully carried out.
V)    Budget: This should include all personnel, supplies and equipment costs, as well as publication costs and travel to meetings. The awards this year will be a maximum of $10,000.

Funding by the Department of OMFS Education and Research Fund should be acknowledged on publications and abstracts.

Faculty research mentors responsible for student or fellow research projects must review, approve, and submit the application electronically to oralsurgery@partners.org. Proposals submitted by fellows or students will be returned as administratively unresponsive to the proposal.

Twenty percent of the funding will be held in reserve pending completion of a final report, e.g. submitted manuscript, summarizing the research activities.

Educational Grant Application Format

Please use the format below to apply for a grant to attend an educational or research meeting for purposes of presenting research summaries, e.g. abstract or poster. Please limit it to one page. Faculty research mentors responsible for student, or fellow research projects must review, approve, and submit the application electronically to oralsurgery@partners.org.

Fellowship in Orofacial Pain

The Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is pleased to offer a one-year fellowship program in orofacial pain. This program provides an additional year of focused training for graduates of accredited US dental schools with a preference for those who have completed a general practice residency (GPR) or other specialty training. The program, which is based at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) in Boston, Mass., is designed to provide clinical training in the medical and dental management of orofacial-pain patients. The curriculum consists of clinical rotations in orofacial pain with faculty members and elective rotations through various related departments, including Pain, Physical Therapy, Radiology, Neurosurgery, and Neurology, as well as the Headache Center. Didactic and teaching opportunities are also available. The fellow has the opportunity to apply for a clinical/teaching position at Cambridge Health Alliance to provide supplemental income based on 1½ days of clinical practice per week. Individuals seeking academic or research careers and wishing to supplement their training in orofacial pain will be invited to apply for the Harvard School of Dental Medicine (HSDM)-based master of medical sciences (MMSc) or doctor of medical sciences (DMSc) degree programs after completing their clinical fellowship.

Goals and Objectives

Upon completion of this program, the fellow will have the following knowledge and competencies:

  • A basic understanding of the mechanisms involving pain
  • An understanding of the social, physical, psychologic, physiologic, cultural, and behavioral factors contributing to pain

  • Competency in the examination and evaluation of orofacial-pain patients
  • Competency in the diagnosis and management of the orofacial-pain patient
  • Competency to coordinate care for orofacial-pain patients either as a single clinician or within a multidisciplinary team
  • Competency to evaluate outcomes of treatment for orofacial-pain patients.
  • Competency to develop and/or evaluate research projects in orofacial pain.
