San Antonio Military Medical Center Orthopaedic Residency Alumni Association
Early in 2015, we decided that a San Antonio Military Medical Center Orthopaedic Residency Alumni Association would be an excellent vehicle to celebrate the heritage and successes of so many alumni, and to further the education of the current San Antonio Uniformed Services Healthcare Education Consortium Residents. The mission of your Association is to augment the education of SAMMC orthopaedic residents and current faculty, and to build esprit de corps and networking opportunities amongst our alumni.
With the generosity of faculty and resident alumni and our industry sponsors, we raised over $120,000 in our first four years. With this support, we have been able to highlight the annual George E. Omer Research Symposium at offsite venues, hold the Annual Golf Tournament, celebrate graduation at a variety of locations and, above all, improve the education of the residents through the Visiting Professor Program. Renowned surgeons have brought their knowledge directly to the residents and have left lasting impacts on the entire department.
As the financial strength of the Association grows with the aid of Data Trace Management Services (DTMS), we hope to increase our educational offerings for the residents and faculty, including attendance at the AAOS Educator’s Course, specialty annual meetings and scholarships for board review courses.
Of course, to continue to innovate and expand our educational mission, the Association will need the continued support of its Members. The Association is a non-profit, tax exempt 501(c) corporation in Texas, and can accept your gifts to be applied to Association activities/initiatives. Gifts can be submitted at any time directly to the Association through DTMS. See the Donors page for previous donors and how to donate to your Association.
