High School students participate in POP Day

University of Utah Orthopeadics was delighted to host the Perry Outreach Program (POP) at our S.K.I. Lab this weekend, May 11. The Perry Initiative Program inspires young women to explore Orthopaedic Surgery and Engineering after high school. 

The Perry Outreach Program (POP)
The Perry Initiative partners with medical centers, universities, and high schools to host Perry Outreach Programs for high school students. These day-long programs are held at over 45 locations nationwide throughout the year, and we encourage young women and all gender identities to apply. 

Participants perform mock orthopaedic surgeries and conduct biomechanical engineering experiments, while also hearing from prominent women engineers and surgeons in the field and is a free, one-day event to explore hands-on surgery modules and receive mentorship from women surgeons and engineers. Our program focuses on the advancement of women in STEM.
