The future of academic oral and maxillofacial surgery is an important aspect of our department's mission. For this reason, the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery retains a percentage of its clinical practice revenues annually to help underwrite meaningful research and academic pursuits of our residents, students and faculty.
As educators and investigators, we show our commitment to the future of oral and maxillofacial surgery by sustaining an active program of independent research and by providing leadership and mentorship in investigational methodology. Since 2002, the faculty of the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery has contributed a percentage of its clinical income to the Education and Research Fund in order to underwrite compelling investigational pursuits without regard to extramural funding. This investment derives value in many ways:
To date, our internal grants have supported educational programs, travel, and pilot projects.

The following are ERF-funded projects conducted by OMS residents or HSDM students under the mentorship of OMS faculty:
It is the goal of the ERF to become a sustaining endowment. We welcome the generous contributions of Mass General OMS alumni, former patients, and charitable foundations in helping us to reach this goal.
