ASES News – January 2020
Upcoming ASES Grant Opportunites
Applications are due February 8th
Each year, the society issues call for proposals encouraging new investigators to apply for seed and start-up funding for promising shoulder and elbow research projects. Grants of up to $20,000, for work to be performed over 12-24 months, are considered. Only orthopaedic surgeons acting as principal investigators are eligible to apply. All applications are reviewed and graded by the ASES Research Committee.
In an effort to provide research assistance to Candidate members, the ASES will offer an annual grant of $10,000 to most deserving applicant. This grant was started thanks to the generosity of 4 donors. Dr. Felix Savoie, Dr. Anthony Romeo, Dr. Matthew Ramsey and Dr. William Levine.
The ASES PJI Grant is designed to provide supplementary funds or funding for pilot studies which will lead to larger foundation or government grants. The focus can be on any aspect of scientific study that affects the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of shoulder prosthetic joint infection. A grant of up to $10,000, for work to be performed over 12-24 months, will be considered. Only orthopaedic surgeons acting as principal investigators are eligible to apply.
Applications for all 3 grants are due by February 8th, 2020. Completed applications should be emailed to ASES at email@example.com.

2020 Clinician Scholar Career Development Program
The American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons is partnering with the Orthopaedic Research Society on the 2020 Clinician Scholar Career Development Program (CSCDP) to be held on September 24-26, 2020 in Rosemont, Illinois. The CSCDP is an annual two-day training workshop for orthopaedic residents in their PGY2-PGY5 years, surgeons in fellowships, and junior faculty (through year three) who have the potential and desire to become orthopaedic clinician scholars. Clinician scholars advance the field of orthopaedics through innovative research and peer-reviewed funding. ASES will sponsor 2 member applicants interested in pursuing this opportunity.
If you are interested in participating please complete the application form below by March 15th. You can view more details about the program on the ORS website, however, members that wish to be sponsored by ASES must apply through the link below.

ASES Member Benefit
2019 Annual Meeting – Abstract Compendium
The ASES Annual Meeting Abstract Compendium is now available to all members of the society. The compendium includes 383 abstracts submitted for the ASES 2019 Annual Meeting this past October in New York, NY, but not included for podium presentations. This free benefit not only advances the mission and vision of ASES, but it is also directly aligned with the society’s strategic plan. We hope that you will enjoy having access to the compendium.
This compendium has been made possible by support from DJO. The American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons gratefully acknowledge DJO in support of this project and in support of the Society and our mission.
The link below will take you to the ASES Member’s Only section where you will be asked to login with your ASES member credentials. One the page is accessed, you will find a link to the compendium. After opening the link to the compendium, feel free to download, save, or print the file via icons you will find in the upper right-hand corner of that weblink. The Table of Contents provides a listing of abstracts to assist you in navigating the file.
Do More With Your Data Through Registry Participation
Clinical data registries help the frontline orthopaedic surgeon to collect quality data without having to create the entire infrastructure themselves and serve a vital role in empowering surgeons to demonstrate quality based on their data.
In late 2018, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) launched the AAOS Shoulder & Elbow Registry (SER). Participation by practice sites (hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, or private practices) enables evidence-based analysis by surgeons on a scale not possible before.
Practice sites that join SER get full logistic and technical support from expert staff. And, these benefits:
- Shoulder arthroplasty, rotator cuff repair, and elbow arthroplasty modules for data collection
- Dashboards for all surgeons at the site
- The RegistryInsights® patient-reported outcome (PRO) technology solution to administer and manage PRO measure collection
- Participation counting towards ABOS Maintenance of Certification requirements
Watch the replay from the AAOS webinar, “New AAOS Shoulder & Elbow Registry Modules You Should Know About,” to learn more or if you would like to speak to an AAOS staff member about enrollment, please contact AAOS Registry Engagement Associate Kristine Sizemore at email@example.com.
