IAOMS Foundation 2020 Annual Report
A video message from IAOMS Foundation Chair, Dr. Larry Nissen
The IAOMS Foundation Board of Trustees would like to extend our gratitude to all 2020 donors and supporters and our corporate, foundation and regional partners. Your continued support throughout this challenging year has been deeply appreciated. Though restrictions due to the global pandemic have diminished our ability to fully deliver in-person programs in 2020, we remain hopeful that conditions will allow us to resume our Fellowship and Scholarship programs in the near future. Until then, we would like to share some highlights of 2020 with you. 

As we look ahead, we invite you to join us in celebrating the IAOMS Foundation’s 25th anniversary in 2021. On behalf of the Foundation Board of Trustees, thank you for your on-going support. We look forward to seeing you in person at the first opportunity.
Dr. Larry Nissen
IAOMS Foundation Chair
Mitchell Dvorak
Executive Director
We would like to acknowledge the continued growth and expansion of IAOMS Foundation programs that allow us to achieve the Foundation's mission of improving the quality and safety of healthcare worldwide by advancing patient care, education and research, and meeting the growing needs of the global OMS community.
IAOMS Foundation Fellowship Program
Demand for in-person training has increased substantially since the inception of the Fellowship program in 2010.  The Foundation receives over 70 applications for its Cleft Lip and Palate and Craniofacial Surgery and Oncology and Microvascular Reconstructive Surgery fellowships each year. Thanks to the generous support from our sponsors, KLS Martin, the Osteo Science Foundation and the OMS Foundation, the Foundation has funded 30 fellowships over the past ten years.  Despite the obstacles related to the global pandemic this year, interest in the fellowships remains strong.

We are pleased to share with you the experiences of Dr. Wayne Manana (Zimbabwe) 2019-2020 Oncology and Microvascular Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship recipient at Peking University School & Hospital of Stomatology in Beijing, China. Though Dr. Manana’s fellowship was interrupted by the global pandemic he was able to apply the knowledge and experience he gained to make a difference in his home country of Zimbabwe.

The Visiting Scholars Program
The Visiting Scholars program provides an opportunity for young surgeons to observe and study with top surgeons and professors for periods of short duration. Scholars select a location for study from among 33 IAOMS affiliated training centers around the world. Thanks to Osteo Science Foundation, the IAOMS Foundation has been able to increase the annual number of scholarship awards from two to seven since the program’s inception in 2019.

Gift of Knowledge Program
The Gift of Knowledge Program offers customized training to surgeons throughout the world. IAOMS leaders volunteer their time to design, promote and implement comprehensive educational sessions, particularly in high need areas. 

In February 2020, IAOMS Foundation leadership traveled to Manila to present courses on the principles of orthognathic surgery and principles of aesthetic facial surgery at the Philippine College of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons (PCOMS) 43rd National Convention on Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. 
Gift of Knowledge Program host surgeon, Dr. Mario Esquillo, along with IAOMS lecturers Dr. Gabriele Millesi and Dr. G.E. Ghali, participated in the Philippines Gift of Knowledge program and share their thoughts on this experience below.
"The Gift of Knowledge was able to provide us with comprehensive knowledge of its subject matter even in the first series. Not only on the principles, but our prominent resource speakers were able to share cases from simple to complicated and how they were managed. With an intimate number of participants we were able to have enough time to have a good interaction from the audience."

Dr. Mario Esquillo, Gift of Knowledge Host Surgeon

"As a lecturer and surgeon I prefer to have my students in front of me where I can actually respond to the audience. I may change the tone of my lecture, my presentation or the operation based upon the feedback from whoever’s surrounding me."

Dr. G.E. Ghali, IAOMS Education Chair

"I am absolutely convinced that the Gift of Knowledge is one of the best programs we can offer within the IAOMS Foundation. This is at our core, our heart, that we can provide education to the world."
