Bone Bulletin


We are thrilled to introduce the inaugural issue of the Bone Bulletin, DePalma Orthopaedic Society’s student-run, non-peer reviewed journal for Sidney Kimmel Medical College (SKMC) students. The journal’s aim is to provide yet another way to be involved with orthopaedics in medical school and to promote student interest in orthopaedics by reporting on diverse aspects of the field through editorial and opinion pieces. Under the close 1-on-1 mentorship of a physician from the Rothman Orthopaedic Institute, students have a hands-on opportunity to write about and directly engage with orthopaedic research and developments.

Within the pages of this journal, you will find research articles, insightful reviews, thought-provoking interviews, and inspiring stories of clinical experiences. We believe that by providing an inclusive platform for students to express their ideas and share their research findings, we can foster a vibrant community of learners and thinkers dedicated to advancing the field of orthopaedic surgery.

We extend our gratitude to the writers and editorial team, who have formed the contributions featured in this issue. We would also like to express our gratitude to the mentors and physicians from the Rothman Orthopaedic Institute, who have supported us throughout this journey. Your guidance, encouragement, and expertise have been invaluable in shaping this endeavor and inspiring us to pursue excellence in the field of orthopaedics.

Thank you for joining us on this exciting venture. We are beyond excited to present the invaluable contributions that everyone has made for the Bone Bulletin.
