The Orthopod Continues to Evolve

Dr. BeckenbaughBy Jeffrey P. Beckenbaugh, DO

We are now on our third version of the electronic Orthopod experience.  I hope our new format is being received well.  It is exciting to explore new ideas and help facilitate a useful and informative communication with our membership.

After some discussion regarding cost, content, and resource commitment, we have decided to proceed with biannual publishing.  Our hope is to provide a media that is rich with content and information of interest for our membership. It was felt that biannual newsletters would serve that purpose very nicely.  In the end, we may find there is too much to share with only two yearly editions, but for now we hope this schedule will serve our membership well.

This edition reintroduces membership contributions.  We have two interesting papers that highlight our members’ work in trauma and adult reconstruction.  In the following editions, I would also like to include some educational content on hot topics from each of our major sections.  The intent would be to provide a review from experts on some of the most talked about subjects in each field.  Hopefully this will serve as an opportunity to educate our membership, and keep us all up to date on important Orthopedic Surgery topics. 

Our section heads will be given the opportunity to choose a topic and select a person, or group, to provide a review relative to a topic from their area of specialty.  If anyone has a topic they would like to have addressed, please feel free to email your suggestion to Orthopodeditor@aoao.org. Additionally, I am always very interested in gathering ideas for content that would be relevant to our membership.  Please email any suggestions you have.

Thank you in advance for your ideas and input, and I hope everyone enjoys Miami!
