We recently held the inaugural Nth Dimensions BioSkills workshop, a hands-on opportunity for Memphis high school students to get exposure to the orthopaedic field, careers, industry, and equipment. This skills training event was hosted in collaboration with Nth Dimensions, Bridges, and Memphis-Shelby County Schools. Our sincere thanks to Zimmer Biomet for providing instrumentation for eight hands-on stations used by 80 students. This event was funded by the Junior League of Memphis. We’re grateful for the UTHSC medical students who volunteered their time alongside Campbell Clinic team members, too.
This workshop was led by the idea, “Teach me, show me, let me.” During this half-day program, students had the opportunity to hear from speakers and panelists, rotate through skill stations, and meet orthopaedic surgeons and other healthcare professionals to learn about the profession.
The CCF is eager to help build the orthopaedic workforce of tomorrow and foster a more diverse, inclusive, and equitable environment for individuals to learn, work, and thrive. Thank you to our Campbell staff, partners and volunteers!
