SICOT Research Academy - Request for Applications

Dear SICOT members,

I am writing to you with some exciting news for SICOT and an opportunity for interested members. Under the leadership and vision of President S. Rajasekaran, SICOT is starting a Research Academy/Council to help ensure that SICOT not only continues its rich tradition of providing orthopaedic knowledge but also becomes a knowledge creator by supporting high quality evidence based research.

We are asking for interested volunteers who want to serve in this newly created Academy to submit an abbreviated CV (5 pages) and short letter expressing their interest and qualifications to dobbsm@wudosis.wustl.edu.

I look forward to this next exciting step for SICOT and thank President Rajasekaran for his leadership, vision, and ability to make this a reality.

Respectfully yours,

Matthew B. Dobbs, M.D.
Dr. Asa C. and Mrs. Dorothy W. Jones
Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery
Director of Strategic Planning
Washington University Department of Orthopaedic Surgery
