Chapel Hill, NC—The American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (ABOS) has selected four outstanding orthopaedic surgery residents to participate as the second cohort of the ABOS Resident Advisory Panel. Many talented orthopaedic residents from across the country applied for two-year terms on the Panel.
The new members of the ABOS Resident Advisory Panel are:
- Steven Greene, MD, University of Mississippi Medical Center
- Michelle Lawson, MD, Oregon Health & Science University
- Joseph Sliepka, MD, University of Washington
- Claire Isabelle Verret, MD, Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell
This cohort will join the first group of Advisory Panel members that were selected last year:
- Matthew Booth, MD, Washington University
- Erik Fritz, MD, University of Minnesota
- Alex Gu, MD, George Washington School of Medicine and Health Sciences
- Madeline Lyons, MD, Loyola University Medical Center
The ABOS Resident Advisory Panel assists the ABOS by providing information which will be used to support orthopaedic residents across the country. They work with the ABOS Graduate Medical Education (GME) Committee and the ABOS Communications Task Force. The goal is for the Advisory Panel to identify and work on a project each year that will benefit orthopaedic residents across the country.
All applicants submitted an application, curriculum vitae (CV), personal statement, and a letter of recommendation from their residency program director. These were reviewed by members of the ABOS Board of Directors who serve on the ABOS GME Committee.
“In our first year, we had an excellent group of residents who have already greatly helped the ABOS,” said ABOS Executive Medical Director Dr. David F. Martin. “This new group looks equally as impressive, and we look forward to working with them for the next two years.”
The American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery, Inc. was founded in 1934 as a private, voluntary, nonprofit, independent organization to serve the best interests of the public and the medical profession. These interests are achieved through the ABOS by establishing standards for the education of orthopaedic surgeons. These standards are evaluated by the ABOS through examinations and practice evaluations. The ABOS Board of Directors consists of 20 practicing orthopaedic surgeons and one public member.
