Dr. Randall

It is an honor and privilege to serve as Chair for our storied Department. Our rich history provides a solid foundation for us to further grow our Mission. With reverence to our past, we are looking to our future as leaders of musculoskeletal health care. Earlier this year, the faculty developed a Strategic Plan to guide us for the next five years. We have quite an ambitious agenda and need support to realize all we would like to do to grow and enhance our mission.

I hope that this report highlighting a few of our collaborations and achievements during 2019 will inspire you to be involved as we continue to serve our patients and community. I would like to personally thank our patients, faculty, residents, fellows, and friends for creating a culture of collaboration, innovation and philanthropy.

As my first year as Chair comes to a close, as you read this, please know that we can't accomplish further excellence without you. Your time, philanthropic contributions and continued engagement are a cornerstone to our success. Whether you are looking for outstanding care, leading edge research opportunities, unparalleled education, or wish to help us address issues facing patients in need of exceptional orthopaedic care, please stay connected.
