The Board of Directors of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (ABOS) recently elected Joshua Jacobs, M.D., Chairman of Orthopedic Surgery at Rush University Medical Center, as a new director. He begins service on the Board immediately.
Dr. Jacobs completed his orthopedic residency training at the Combined Harvard Orthopaedic Residency Program in Boston and his fellowship in Adult Reconstructive Orthopaedic Surgery at Rush. He holds the positions of Associate Provost for Research at Rush University and Vice Dean for Research at Rush Medical College. Dr. Jacobs is a past president of the Orthopaedic Research Society and the United States Bone and Joint Decade/Initiative.
Dr. Jacobs told OTW, “I’m honored to be elected to the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery, a very important organization in our field. It is a talented group of some of the top orthopaedic surgeons in the world. I have been asked to serve on several committees: oral examination, written examination, Maintenance of Certification, credentials, and research. There are many exciting things happening on each of these committees and I look forward to jumping right in. While I’ve known most of the Board members for many years and have worked with ABOS for a long time, I look forward to learning even more about ABOS and finding the best ways I can help.”
