The United States Bone and Joint Initiative (USBJI) and Bone and Joint Canada are dedicated to raising public awareness and to increasing research of musculoskeletal diseases. Research in the musculoskeletal diseases performed by young investigators is not keeping pace with the increasing burden of these diseases. In response, the Young Investigator Initiative is a career development and grant mentoring program provides early-career investigators an opportunity to work with experienced researchers in our field to assist them in securing funding and other survival skills required for pursuing an academic career.
