The AOCOO-HNS Foundation provides grants to resident members so that they can donate their professional services to patients in developing countries. Members are encouraged to actively engage in humanitarian projects to help those in need across the world, and the Foundation is happy to provide the financial resources needed in order to do so. Grants of $2,000 are available in return for at least one week of service.
The grant application can be downloaded below and is accepted from residents who have completed at least one year of ophthalmology training or two years of otolaryngology training. All medical experiences while on a trip are intended as supplemental training and do not fulfill training requirements.
