The COMET program is intended to train highly qualified pre- and postdoctoral trainees in rigorous clinical research methodology to address pressing problems relating to orthopedic and musculoskeletal disorders. The range of methodologies suitable for support is wide, ranging from epidemiology, biostatistics, economics, pharmacoepidemiology, biomechanics, policy modeling, behavioral research and much in between.

Orthopedic and musculoskeletal disorders encompass orthopedic surgical interventions and a wide range of disorders affecting the musculoskeletal system including, but not limited to, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, spinal disorders, regional musculoskeletal disorders, tendon, ligament and other soft tissue conditions and musculoskeletal pain.
