Show Notes

Welcome to the OrthoJOE podcast with Dr. Marc Swiontkowski and Dr. Mohit Bhandari. In this episode of OrthoJOE, we’ll be talking about the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery (JBJS) as well as Orthoevidence, our two publications which both have the goals of synthesizing information and making it digestible for the public and professionals in the industry. Today we’re also talking about the impact of COVID-19 on orthopaedic surgery, the speed at which information was disseminated, as well as the publishing standards on this information as it was released to the public. 

If you have any comments, questions, or topics you would like us to cover, please feel free to reach out so we can read your messages and possibly answer your questions during the next episode of OrthoJOE.

Talking Points:

  • The history and mission statement for Orthoevidence
  • The early days of COVID-19
  • Infodemic
  • The speed at which information was disseminated 
  • How publishing standards have evolved 
  • Preprint servers and associated use during crisis

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 ...
