OMeGA is an independent organization established by the American Orthopaedic Association (AOA). The OMeGA board members are free from conflicts of interest: they do not have financial interests in any orthopaedic medical device manufacturer (for the previous two years) or leadership roles (i.e., financial decision-making) in orthopaedic fellowship or residency programs and educational institutions.
Grant recipients and allocations are determined by the OMeGA board and review committees composed of sub-specialty experts. These surgeons evaluate education programs based on objective criteria that include, among others, goals and objectives of the program, program accreditation status, ratio of faculty to fellows, quality of resources and facilities and recent published papers by fellows.
