We are delighted to announce that three of our investigator-initiated research collaborators have been awarded the prestigious Student Investigator and Early Career Scholarships sponsored by the University of Colorado School of Medicine.
These scholarships are awarded annually to the top-scoring abstract submissions made by medical, doctoral, residents, and post-doctoral students and those early in their careers (up to five years post-education). This year’s scholarships include free registration to the 8th International Congress on Bone Conduction Hearing and Related Technologies (most commonly referred to as OSSEO) and special program recognitions.
Please join us in congratulating our winning collaborators for 2023!
Student Investigator Scholarship
This scholarship was awarded to the ten best-scoring student abstract submitters. Nicole Jiam, MD of Massachusetts Eye and Ear and Harvard Medical School was one of the winners for her topic, Music Perception in Bone Anchored Hearing Implant Users.
