Ruth Jackson Orthopaedic Society (RJOS) is pleased to be collaborating with The American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society (AOFAS) and the J. Robert Gladden Orthopaedic Society (JRGOS) on a Physician Wellness Webinar Series.
The recording of this first webinar in the series “Mentoring in a Diverse Workforce” will be available soon for viewing. This webinar was moderated by Christen M. Russo, MD with MaCulus V. Hogan, MD and Erica Taylor, MD serving as faculty.
Webinar Description:Diversity encourages stronger leadership and better all-around performance, yet it is well-known that orthopaedic surgery lacks diversity. To promote a diverse workplace, mentoring must occur from the bottom up – by increasing early exposure to women and minority students at the high school and college level – and from the top down – by engaging our peers and faculty to set and continuously re-evaluate goals at the leadership level.
In this webinar, faculty from the AOFAS, RJOS, and JRGOS discussed how orthopaedic surgeons can facilitate diversity in the specialty, and ultimately elevate patient care and engagement in the community.
The recording will be available for viewing soon. Please check back!
