Inspiring Young Women to Become Orthopedic Surgeons & Engineers

UConn Health Orthopedics & Sports Medicine is proud to host a pair of workshops to inspire young women to become leaders in orthopedic surgery and engineering. Despite the increasing number of women entering medical and graduate school, women make up only 6.1% of fully accredited practicing orthopedic surgeons according to a 2014 survey by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Only 12.4% of the faculty at engineering schools are women, with that percentage being lower for mechanical engineering.

Join Dr. Katherine Coyner and The Perry Initiative for hands-on mock orthopedic surgeries, case study presentations, and mentorship.
