Dr. Stetson Attends Extremity War Injury...

As part of his duties as the new chairman-elect of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) International Committee, Dr. Stetson attended the Extremity War Injury (EWI) Conference in January where he participated in a meeting concerning disaster preparedness.  His committee is working with the Department of Defense, the US Army, Air Force and Navy to develop a credentialing process for orthopaedic surgeons to volunteer in case of a national or international emergency.  The committee has developed a Disaster Response Course modeled with the help of the military and will have over 100 civilian volunteer surgeons enrolled by the end of February.  This could become a model for volunteerism for other medical and surgical specialties.
