The Orthopaedic & Rehabilitation Engineering Center (OREC) is designed to promote and encourage significant advances in clinical research through coordinated endeavors between Marquette University and the Medical College of Wisconsin. These opportunities are afforded to faculty and students at Marquette University and to faculty, fellows, and residents in the departments of Orthopaedic Surgery and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the Medical College of Wisconsin.
Designed to be of mutual benefit to faculty, students and staff, OREC seeks to establish a focus of excellence with national recognition in research and research training while increasing levels of extramural support. Through economics of scale, OREC offers an academically effective and cost-efficient means of supporting high-level, productive, clinical research laboratories, and it provides academic opportunities to faculty and students that support professional development of the highest caliber.
