Orthopedics This Week—August 2, 2017
Orthopedics This Week featured HSS sports medicine surgeon Thomas L. Wickiewicz, MD in an article about his recent induction into the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine’s (AOSSM) Hall of Fame. Dr. Wickiewicz was inducted on July 21, 2017 at the Society’s Annual Meeting in Toronto, Canada.
The article noted that Dr. Wickiewicz has been practicing at HSS for 35 years, and during that time he has educated more than 164 sports fellows, countless residents and medical students. Asked about his experiences as an educator, Dr. Wickiewicz said "Education of residents and fellows happens one student at a time. Although all students are different, just like other people, as the teacher, all the experiences are outstanding for me. It may sound trite, but it is absolutely true. Some interactions are easy, some frustrating, some exasperating, but all, in their own way, are outstanding."
