Fellowship Programs

BioTissue will support fellowship programs in the areas of ophthalmology, optometry, pain management, sports medicine, wound care, orthopedics, and foot and ankle surgery. Fellowship grants generally support the direct expenses related to the fellow’s travel, travel and registration fees for attending medical conferences, fellow hospital dues, and financial support for research conducted by the fellow. BioTissue only supports organizations, not individuals, and organizations must submit the request. BioTissue has no role in the identification or selection of the fellows.
