New York, NY - Despite great strides in female representation in rheumatology, few women are choosing to specialize in orthopedic surgery. Plagued by negative stereotypes and misconceptions, experts are taking steps to encourage more diversity in this fieldan area they say is fertile ground for learning and opportunity. "Orthopedic surgery seems to have somewhat of an image problem," Dr Thomas Sculco, surgeon-in-chief at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City, told rheumawire. "It has been said that orthopedic surgery requires a strong back and weak mind. There is a general impression that jocks go into this specialty, and that's really unfortunate, because we are actually seeing some of the best studentsthe top 10% to 15% of their classapplying." Sculco says the pool of applicants has shifted in recent years as more and more students are exposed to orthopedic surgery, but he says women are still only making up approximately 7% of national applicantsup only marginally from 3% in the past.

Orthogate UpgradePlease hang on while we complete our migration of Orthogate to a new content management system.

Apologies for the unannounced change but we were running into troubles with hack attempts with our other system.

We have managed to transfer over almost all of the OSRR Forum posts and all forum user details from the old forum. If your login does not work or you run into any problems please let me know. Feel free to PM me at "christian".

I will be going through the posts in the Forum and fixing URLs that reference the old forum. If you run into one of these and it was a post of yours I would appreciate you fixing the URL .

There is still a lot of work in converting some of the old content such as the Patients Guide to the Internet. The Orthopaedists' Guide to the Internet will be phased out unless someone wishes to step up and become an editor to assist with its maintenance.

If you have any comments, questions or want to help out let me know.

Best regards,

The Orthopod Mailing list is discussing an on-going series of mini-workshops on the subject of using PubMed to search the orthopaedic literature. These workshops are short self-guided tours of a particular facet of the PubMed site beginning with the basics.

They use current topics being discussed by the list as subject matter. The workshops have now been posted:

Index to these workshops
PubMed 1 - Basics (Calcaneo-Navicular Bar)
PubMed 2 - Details Function (Head Splitting Fracture of the humerus)

If there is continuing interest, other workshops will follow. Other Orthopaedic Information Technology Workshops were posted in 2001 on the Orthogate site.
