Marsh elected to post

The American Board of Orthopaedic Surgeons (ABOS) recently elected J. Lawrence Marsh, MD, Chair and DEO of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation, as its 62nd president. The ABOS establishes educational and competency standards for the initial certification of orthopaedic surgeons and through its re-certification process ensures that board certified orthopaedic surgeons continue to provide excellent patient care. Individuals elected to ABOS board of directors have demonstrated exceptional clinical skills and meet the highest standards of ethical and professional conduct.

Marsh's clinical practice is devoted to orthopedic trauma and trauma reconstruction. Specifically, his research focuses on articular fractures and techniques of image analysis to assess the mechanical factors leading to post-traumatic osteoarthritis. His research in surgical training techniques led to new requirements for laboratory-based surgical skills for orthopedic residents, new skills assessments, and improved training techniques.
