MCW Annual Research Day - Resident Omar Khatib, MD Poster Presentation
September 12, 2014

Dr. Omar Khatib, second year resident in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, presented a poster at the Medical College of Wisconsin Annual Research Day on Wednesday, September 10, 2014. The research, carried out by Drs. Khatib and Rao from the Department, along with Arnav Agarwal, senior medical student, looked into factors that motivated US medical students to select a career in orthopaedic surgery. Interesting findings included that exposure to musculoskeletal medicine or orthopaedic surgery as part of a medical school curriculum did not seem to affect student motivation in selecting a career in orthopaedics. The authors also found that while interest level for a career in orthopaedics was amongst minority medical students was as high as non-minority students, interest levels in women lagged their male counterparts.
