For the third interview of our OTCF women series, we spoke with Lee Ann Finno. She hopes that more female orthopedic surgeons will want to become part of the orthopedic trauma community. This would be a great asset to the specialty.
In the domain of osteosynthesis and trauma surgery, and also in the OTC Foundation, women are rather underrepresented. For this reason, we decided to show who the women behind OTC are and what they do for the foundation. Dr. Christina Arnaoutoglou is our second interview partner.
For a few years now, the OTC Foundation collaborates with SECOT, the major orthopedic society in the Latin world. This year, the two organizations are taking their cooperation to a next level.
In the OTC Foundation, just as in the whole domain of trauma surgery, women are rather underrepresented. For this reason, we decided to show who the women behind OTC are and what they do for the foundation. The first woman we interviewed is Margot Hamm from OTC France and AIOD Strasbourg.
He is not only one of the most renowned trauma surgeon worldwide, but also one of the OTC Foundation's founding fathers. Last year, Volker Bühren wore his white coat for the very last time. We asked him what this felt like and talked to him about his involvement with the OTCF.
David Lowenberg is the current president of the OTC Foundation. He is a Clinical Prosessor in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Stanford University School of Medicine, where he has served in the past as Chief of the Division of Orhtopaedic Trauma. We talked to him about his involvement with the OTCF and his opinion on the future of surgery techniques and osteosynthesis education.
Dr. Yvan Arlettaz has been a founding member of OTC Switzerland in 2002 and is its current president. In prospect of the annual OTC Switzerland trauma course in Thun, we wanted to know what his goals for OTC Switzerland are and where he thinks the trauma education is headed.
Since the General Assembly in Amsterdam, the OTC Foundation has a new Honorary Award holder. The Honorary Award is regularly given to an OTC member for an outstanding commitment or achievement. This year's award went to Germany.
