Welcome to Sounds From The Training Room

William Levine, MD

June 1, 2019


My name is Dr. William Levine and I am passionate about mentoring! So, I am pleased to welcome you to the newest resource in the mentorship of Orthopaedic Surgeons: Sounds From The Training Room, a blog dedicated to furthering the education of Orthopaedic Surgeons at all stages of their careers.

Sounds From The Training Room will showcase topics written by members of a newly created JAAOS Mentorship Consortium that follow the path of medical students, residents, fellows and young attendings throughout their education. These posts will center around topics of interest and include tips, lists, insights and advice to guide the surgeons in their educational journey.

The JAAOS Mentorship Consortium is made up of various members of different organizations, including the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), The AAOS Resident Assembly and the founders of OrthoMentor (Amiethab “Tabs” Aiyer, MD, Jonathan Kaplan, MD, and Matt Varacallo, MD)  – an Instagram blog, all of which I am actively engaged with. Consortium members have been working tirelessly to roll out this content and contribute to the mentorship of young surgeons.

Upon visiting JAAOS and going to Sounds From The Training Room, or going directly to http://www.soundsfromthetrainingroom.com, readers will see a homepage comprised of various blog posts, an “About Us” page containing our mission statement and a page dedicated to members of the Consortium and contributing organizations.

Sounds From The Training Room will be posting contributions every other week. The first contributions include an introduction to the blog, how to obtain a letter of recommendation and how to handle the transition into the new role of residency.

Thank you for joining us on this journey into the mentorship of Orthopaedic Surgeons! Follow the blog to be notified when new articles are posted and be sure to interact with us via social media.
