Medacta and the M.O.R.E. Institute
, in collaboration with EFORT, have supported the Michael Freeman Award since 2018, as a demonstration of their strong commitment to education. The Michael Freeman Award was created in memory of Professor Michael Freeman, to honor his lifetime contribution to both the European and the International Orthopaedic Community after he passed away in September 2017.
Every year, one carefully selected clinical research fellow will be guided through a pre-defined research process from the development of a hypothesis to data collection, manuscript writing, and possible presentation at national and international orthopaedic conferences.
