Contribute and support: Foundation for Continuing Education & Research

Our Mission

The Foundation Board of Trustees has adopted the following objectives to fulfill its mission:

Perform or support quality research and education programs that will ultimately provide improved evidence based care, an expanded scope of practice, as well as new and improved techniques.

Actively procure financial resources to both ensure the long-term viability of Foundation and sustain the research that is at the heart of its mission.

Assure the prudent administration of Foundation assets and programs through sound financial, business and scientific management principles.

To date the Foundation has completed internally and published multiple “risk vs. benefits” projects. In addition it has supported research in the fields of anaestheiology, microbiology, oral cancer, TMJ, bone physiology, pain, cleft palate, obstructive sleep apnea and distraction osteogenesis.

The Foundation for Continuing Education and Research (CAOMS) awards financial assistance yearly through the Research Support Grant and the Research Fellowship Award.

Please consult the guideline documents on this page for eligibility and application details.

At the very core of the Foundation is public welfare. Research, advanced training and continuing education are the focus of Foundation. CAOMS members are encouraged to support outreach missions by providing surgical care and expertise abroad. Your generous donations will ultimately bring better care to more people both in Canada and worldwide. Be a part of our future today.
