Academic Project - Research


I have a dream to inform and encourage young foot and ankle surgeons to produce more academic work, and as a woman doctor who strives towards this aim, I spare no effort to make this dream come true. I must point out that Medicine in Brazil, as a developing country, is more assistance-driven than academic, and, thus, there is still much to address in terms of academic contributions.  

I was at the AOFAS Meeting 2018 in Boston, and I greatly enjoyed lectures in the Research Forum. Sheldon Lin, AOFAS Program Chair, made a amazing job, and with his kindy help we beggining this academic project. 

David B. Thordarson, Editor in Chief, Foot and Ankle International, writed the text about:  "Developing research skills through mentorship". 

He is a Editor in Chief, Foot and Ankle International has a great importance in the academic world, which makes your participation extremely valuable. 

It been an honor for us he accept the invitation for this academic project.
