On June 26, the Division's research fellows and budding surgical scientists gathered for an evening of celebration and reflection. Dr. Bhandari reminded them, “this year has exceeded our expectations in both academic accomplishments and productivity. When given a chance to succeed, our residents often exceed!”. The memorable evening was complemented with the best at the renowned Jacob and Co. restaurant in Toronto. Cheers to Waygu!

In attendance were:

    • Harman Chaudhry, who is tackling the growing burden of hip fractures in the Hip Vision Pilot cohort and Hip Attack trials. He was awarded the PSI prize in research for his work on implants for intertrochanteric fractures.
    • Nathan Evaniew, who is leading an agenda of research projects in spine surgery and is focused on the design, conduct, and interpretation of meta-analyses. He is also the Scientific Officer of the Prophylactic Antibiotics in Tumor Surgery (PARITY) international randomized controlled trial, and he was recently awarded a prestigious Michael G. DeGroote Fellowship Award in Clinical Research
    • Moin Khan, who is conducting a number of sports medicine and FAI related research projects and systematic reviews. His work on degenerative meniscal tears was recently accepted to the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ) and his prolific publication profile awarded him two FHS Graduate Student Awards. He is currently conducting an international survey (IN-FOCUS) examining perspectives of orthopaedic surgeons on hip pain in the young adult.
    • Raman Mundi, who has a chief interest in addressing the growing incidence of traumatic injuries in the developing world. He is currently serving as Project Officer for the INORMUS Global study. He was recently awarded a CIHR Scholarship and the Fergus Mills Scholarship to support and acknowledge his research endeavours.
    • Tahira Devji, who is a MSc student currently involved in a number of research projects related to orthopaedic trauma, intimate partner violence and critical care.

The evening was capped off with ideas for ongoing research projects, post-residency fellowships, and academic career planning.
