Fellowship Research Day 2022 Report

On behalf of Dr. Johnny Lau, Divisional Clinical Fellowship Director, Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Toronto

The Annual Fellowship Research day was successfully completed on June 16, 2022. We continued using a virtual platform. We accepted 16 abstracts for podium presentation. The submitted abstracts represented all the hospitals and various subspecialties and were worthy for presentation at any national or international meeting. Dr. Bill Kramer was our guest professor who provided insightful comments, and excellent questions for our fellows.
Dr. Kramer’s Keynote talk was entitled: “A Journey from Fellowship to Retirement.” Dr. Kramer has spent his Orthopaedic career in Toronto at Michael Garron Hospital. He has been instrumental in training many Orthopaedic surgeons, and continues to make an impact on the future of Orthopaedic surgical training as Chair of the Royal College Orthopaedic Specialty Committee. He dispensed many pearls of wisdom that helped him be successful in his career, and life.
