How nice would it be to win $1,000 right about now? It sounds great to us, that’s why we offer the Basil M. Boyd Resident Research Award, worth $1,000, to an orthopedic resident at Oscar Miller Day every year.

Oscar Miller Day is an annual one-day continuing medical education event.  Key thought leaders share their knowledge with orthopedic providers and allied health professionals from the southeastern United States. The symposium rotates the sub-specialty topic each year to include an in-depth review, as well as a look at latest research and advancements in all sub-specialties within the field of orthopedics.

During this year’s Oscar Miller Day Symposium, “Spine Pathology & Its Mimickers: From Primary Care to Specialist”, selected residents will have the opportunity to present their research. Oscar Miller Day guest faculty speakers will then choose the best presentation to win the Basil M. Boyd Resident Research Award.
