The Orthomentor Mindset

Ep4: Interview with Dr WIlliam Levine, Chairman, Columbia University, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery

The Orthomentor trio welcomes its first of a series of distinguished guests to the podcast platform! We are honored and privileged to welcome Dr William Levine to the podcast.

Dr. Levine is the the current chairman of the orthopedic residency program at Columbia, is editor-in-chief of Journal of American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (JAAOS), is the newly minted president of the American Shoulder/Elbow Surgeon Society (ASES) and is a renowned leader in orthopaedic surgery. He is avidly passionate about mentorship, especially when it comes to medical students interested in seeking a career in competitive specialties like Orthopedics.  Dr. Levine provides unparalleled and impressively candid tips and tricks in some of the areas that have eluded various programs and institutions for decades! Some of the discussed topics include:

*What is meant by longitudinal mentorship? What should students prepare for a plan ahead when seeking local mentors? 

*What are the critical elements of developing and cultivating a sophisticated mentor/mentee engagement platform at an institutional level? 

*Why are many medical students applying to orthopedics feeling the pressure to apply to 80 to 90 programs each year? 

*What non-academic attributes does Dr. Levine look for in a medical student application? What are some differentiating factors that can separate two otherwise competitive residency applicants?
