25th Annual Robert E. Leach, MD Visiting Professorship Symposium & 50th Anniversary of the Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program

On Friday, November 18, 2022, the residency program celebrated our 50th year anniversary!  This event was delayed due to Covid-19 but we were able to celebrate in person with the founder of the program Robert E. Leach, MD.  Alumni traveled back to Boston to attend the symposium with our keynote speaker – Bruce Reider, MD and some alumni participated in giving great lectures as well.  The evening was topped off with dinner at the Boston Harbor Hotel.
