Dr. Caitlin Magraw, a resident in the Oral and Maxillofacial Residency Program, won this year’s Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Foundation (OMSF) Resident Research and Education Conference Scholarship. This award is presented to 10 residents in the nation annually.
As a recipient of the scholarship, Magraw received up to $1,000 to assist with the cost of her travel to the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (AAOMS)/OMFS/International Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (IAOMS) Summit in Rosemont, Ill. held last month. The summit also includes programs like New Investigators’ Day and the Resident Educational Program.
The Resident Research and Education Conference Scholarship is awarded to oral and maxillofacial surgery residents who are interested in pursuing academic careers.
“It is wonderful that AAOMS has recognized the academic and research potential of Caitlyn and has provided her with this scholarship,” said Dr. Timothy A. Turvey, professor and chair of the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
