Sharing Techniques ~ Learn More About Our Lecture Series

All of the members of the Program—the surgical team and management—appreciated the opportunity to share the knowledge of some of finest sports medicine surgeons in the world with local physicians and other professional medical staff in Beijing, China.

Consequently, in partnership with the United Family Hospital and Johnson & Johnson (Depuy Mitek), the 2008 Urgent Orthopedic Program sponsored a free lecture series in Beijing.

Each member of the UOP surgical team volunteered to give a presentation; UFH provided conference room facilities and invited their medical staff and referring physicians; and Johnson & Johnson sponsored the series, invited Chinese surgeons they work with in Beijing, and provided food and beverages during the talks.

A Rare Opportunity

The lecture series was well attended and the presentations enthusiastically received. In many ways, the highlight of each lecture from the standpoint of the speakers was the lengthy question and answer session which followed each presentation. Not only did the lectures prompt a discussion of the differing standards of surgical treatment in China compared to the United States, but each of the presenters got the rare opportunity to meet informally with both Chinese and expatriate medical colleagues who practice and live full time in Beijing.
