Program Description












The Perry Initiative partners with medical centers, universities, and high schools to host Perry Outreach Programs for young women in high school. These day-long programs are held at over 50 locations nationwide throughout the year. Participants perform mock orthopaedic surgeries and conduct biomechanical engineering experiments, while also hearing from prominent women engineers and surgeons in the field.

Perry Initiative Medical Student Outreach Programs are hosted by medical schools and connect students to orthopaedic surgeon mentors and like-minded peers, as well as introduce fracture fixation techniques and power tools.
