OSIG – Getting Involved in Orthopaedics Research

Event held by OSIG – Orthopedic Surgery Interest Group on 09/20/2021:

Members of OSIG were privileged to have Dr. MaryBeth Horodyski, the Director of Research for the UF Department of Orthopaedics, share her insight about the best ways to get involved in research within the field of orthopaedic surgery. As an ever-growing field with a highly competitive residency (especially given the transition to Step 1 being scored as pass-fail), being involved in orthopaedics research is more important than ever for medical students interested in pursuing a career in orthopaedic surgery. Dr. Horodyski shared with students information about which research studies are currently being conducted within each subspecialty of orthopaedic surgery at UF; in addition, she listed the names of orthopaedics faculty members who are the most active in research and are most receptive to taking on medical students to assist with their studies.
