NOA Webinar: Women in Orthopaedics

Date: 16 November 2022 at 1pm

Venue: Virtual (Zoom)

Diversity and Inclusion is now a standard to be met in all areas of health care. Orthopaedic surgery has traditionally been dominated by men and even now there is reluctance by women to embrace this speciality. To discuss the topic and breaking down the barriers, we welcome Deborah Eastwood, the current BOA president and Orla Hennessy, a trainee and winner of the Core Trainee Prize 2021 for her essay “A Woman Like Me”

Please join us, and in particular, encourage any trainees who may be considering a career in orthopaedic surgery.

Speakers include:

  • Deborah Eastwood, President of BOA, Consultant Paediatric Orthopaedic Surgeon, Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust
  • Orla Hennessy, ST4 in Trauma and Orthopaedics, Department of Trauma and Orthopaedics, Galway University Hospital, Galway, Ireland.
  • Caroline Hing, Consultant Orthopaedic Knee Surgeon, St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
  • Joanna Thomas, Consultant Paediatric Orthopaedic Surgeon, Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust and Associate Medical Director at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital NHS FT

Further information on this event, including the presentations, is available to NOA members in the Members Only Area of the website. (You will need to have registered for the Members Only Area to gain access)
