Letter from the Editor-In-Chief
Raj Ahluwalia, MD
I know you all have been anxiously anticipating the arrival of the latest edition of the Orthopaedic Journal at Harvard Medical School. Well the wait is over. Despite a minor facelift (new cover color), this is the same journal that you have come to enjoy. Now in its seventh year of publication the journal continues to bring together the Harvard Orthopaedic community. It provides a platform to share current events, ongoing clinical and research projects, alumni news, resident life and other happenings around the Harvard Orthopaedic community.
This journal would not have been possible without the collective efforts my fellow resident editors Jennifer Graham, Mark Price and George Dyer. They have worked on all fronts to make sure we continue maintaining the high standards set by our predecessors. In addition, I would also like to thank Diane Sheehan. She was an invaluable asset.
This year we have been fortunate to have the continued support of industry. In addition, I also want to thank all the alumni who donated money to the journal. This is a very worthy cause you are supporting.
This year the editors at OJHMS have decided to dedicate the journal to an individual who has been instrumental in our training here at Harvard. Dr. Dennis Burke has devoted his life to the care of his patients and to the teaching of the residents in this program, and we couldnt think of a more deserving person for this honor. Dr. William Harris, a close friend of Dr. Burkes and a true pioneer in the field of arthroplasty, has written a compelling dedication as only he could.
Being the editor in chief of this journal has truly been an honor for me. I hope you enjoy the 7th edition of the Orthopaedic Journal at Harvard Medical School.
