2018 is off to a Great Start!
Nth Dimensions Clinical Correlations Lectures and Hands-on Workshops in Orthopaedics and Radiology!
Hats off to Dean Nesbitt and her team at UTSW for hosting us for a 2nd Annual Clinical Correlations and Bioskills Workshop for over 40 medical students and over 180 high school students this January. The students were just enthralled and enamoured with the sawbones stations, while many of the students demonstrated that they were certainly adept at successfully performing ultrasound-guided biopsy on Jello! #HowFun
Special thanks to all of the volunteer surgeons and radiologists who took time out of their busy weekends to spend time with these young students.

The overall goal of Nth Dimensions Phase I Pipeline Programs is to increase awareness of the specialties being addressed, i.e. Orthopaedics, Radiology, and Physical Therapy, through physician-led lectures and simulated surgeries/procedures targeting minority and female high school, college and medical students. These sessions act as a primary point of recruitment meant to expose students to these fields early in their medical and undergraduate school matriculation and to inform/recruit students for the Nth Dimensions Summer Internship program. Nth Dimensions conducted 11 Clinical lectures and Bioskills workshops in 2017 and will partner with the leadership of Historically Black Colleges and University Medical Schools and Professional student associations, such as the SNMA and the LMSA to supercede the 863 students that we (Nth) educated last year. #WeCannotWait
Special thanks to UTSW, ZimmerBiomet, GE and the ACR for your support of this important work!
