Faculty Educator Development Award (FEDA)

This AAOMS award was created to encourage promising young oral and maxillofacial surgeons to choose a long term faculty career in the specialty; to encourage promising oral and maxillofacial surgery faculty members who have been on faculty for up to 5 years to continue a faculty career in the specialty; to provide a financial incentive to Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA) accredited residency training programs to retain current faculty and to recruit new faculty. The award was established to support individual faculty members. The OMS Foundation contributes financial support to the FEDA each year. The deadline for FEDA applications is April 1.
