Innovation (with special guest Ed Harvey)

In this episode, Marc and Mo are joined by special guest Ed Harvey (tenured professor at McGill University and Past-President of the Canadian Orthopaedic Association) in a lively discussion on the topic of innovation in the field of orthopaedic surgery. The discussion touches on a number of related questions: Invention is often confused with innovation. What is the difference?  What is the phenotype of a surgeon-innovator, and how does such an individual differ from a surgeon-scientist or surgeon-educator? What are the necessary skills and qualities of the surgeon-innovator? How can we identify individuals with these skills, and how can we motivate individuals to develop them? Are people born with these skills, and can these skills be taught?  When is the right time to innovate? Are you ever too young or too old to innovate? How does the concept of value relate to the concept of innovation? What are the roles of the “3 Ps” (Patient, Physician, and Payor) in achieving commercialization? How does a surgeon-innovator define “success”?  Why is it important to have an efficient and effective team during the commercialization process? How does the team change over time? What kind of expertise is needed to navigate the regulatory issues related to innovation? What are investors and venture capitalists (VCs) ultimately looking for when evaluating an invention?  OrthoJOE Mailbag: feedback, comments, and suggestions from our audience can be sent to [email protected] Links: Schiffman CJ, Prabhakar P, ...

In this episode, Marc and Mo are joined by special guests Dr. Clarence Shields (the first African American team physician in the NFL) and Dr. Joel Boyd (the first African American team physician in the NHL) in an insightful discussion on the importance of increasing diversity in the field of orthopaedics in general and sports medicine in particular. What has changed over the years, and what challenges, barriers, and opportunities remain? How do we proactively attract underrepresented minorities into sports fellowships and careers in sports medicine? How do we move from optics to meaningful action?

Women in Orthopaedics (with special guests Ann Van Heest and Laurie Hiemstra)

In this episode, Marc and Mo are joined by special guests Ann Van Heest (Professor and Director of Education in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Minnesota) and Laurie Hiemstra (Orthopaedic Surgeon at Banff Sport Medicine and soon-to-be President-Elect of the Canadian Orthopaedic Association) in an illuminating discussion on the challenges faced by women in the field of orthopaedics—and, more importantly, what can be done to address these challenges. This topic was suggested by one of our listeners (Rostanda Meireles, the first woman in the Brazilian Hip Society) via the OrthoJoe mailbag ([email protected]). The discussion touched on a number of themes:  What systematic disadvantages do women continue to face in orthopaedics?  How do these institutional barriers impact their careers in terms of meeting the requirements for board certification, becoming successful surgeons, obtaining grants and industry support, performing original research, publishing articles, and so on?  How do cultural differences around the world impact women as they try to become established in the field? How can these issues be addressed locally, nationally, and internationally? How can we address the root causes of the “pipeline” issue, given the fact that 50% of medical students in the US are female, compared with only 15% of orthopaedic surgeons? What has worked, what hasn’t worked, and where should we be focusing our efforts going forward? How can we drive cultural change for the purpose of increasing the representation of women in positions of leadership within the field?  How can men ...
