“Ongoing medical education is essential to remain at the forefront of innovation in orthopedic surgery,” said Cynthia D. Sculco, chairperson of the Benefit Committee and wife of Thomas P. Sculco, M.D., surgeon-in-chief at Hospital for Special Surgery. “The hospital’s outstanding medical education program benefits patients and physicians throughout the world and underscores our leadership in the areas of orthopedics, rheumatology, anesthesiology, musculoskeletal radiology, physiatry, rehabilitation and sports medicine. Support raised through this event helps grow Hospital for Special Surgery’s award-winning medical education program.”
Funds raised at this benefit underwrite a key component to Hospital for Special Surgery’s education and training, the HSS Journal, a peer-reviewed journal published twice a year that features articles by the hospital’s faculty and alumni. In each edition, the journal presents innovative research, clinical pathways and the latest in techniques to educate physicians and surgeons and to further the hospital's broad-based education mission.
