"We all recall our fellowship experiences fondly. They are formative years for us as we enter practice. Teaching, both clinical and about life, we received stays with us for our lifetimes. Long term friendships and mentorships are formed.
I had the honour of attending the 25th anniversary of the Roth|McFarlane Hand and Upper Limb Centre (also known as the HULC) last week in London, Ontario. I truly cherished my time at the HULC with all the great surgeons and supporting staff." - Dr. Jaydeep Moro
Friday night was a dinner event at the home of Dr. Graham King. Upper extremity case conferences were held on Saturday followed by a casual dinner at Dr. Doug Ross' home. Sunday was a day of fun at the cottage of Dr. Ken Faber.
The Roth|MacFarlane Hand and Upper Limb celebrated 25 years of our combined orthopaedic and plastic surgery unit, representing the largest centre of its kind in Canada. The centre has demonstrated sustained excellence in Clinical Care, Teaching and Research. Thirty fellows attended the reunion from countries as far away as Australia, Israel and Switzerland. Since its inception over 680,000 patients have been see and almost 90,000 surgical procedures have been performed. Over 26 million in peer reviewed research funding has been awarded and over 825 research papers have been published since its inception at St. Joseph's Health Centre in London.
