I am a retired orthopedic surgeon who had been in clinical practice for close to 40 years before retiring. I did my undergraduate training at the University of Southern California (go Trojans) graduating with a BS in Biology. I attended the Georgetown University School of Medicine and went on to specialty training in Orthopedic Surgery at UC San Francisco finishing up with the United States Army Medical Corp with the rank of Major. I have been practicing orthopedic surgery since then until retirement. In surgery, there has always been the saying “see one, do one, TEACH one. Education has always been important in my family; and all four of my kids are graduates of the UC system. They all experienced the trials and tribulations of SATs, National Merit, AP courses, etc. In my spare time I have built lifted off-road four wheel drive vehicles, every desktop computer we have owned from components, have mastered unusual computer programs such as AutoCad, and have welded together a utility trailer that even passed California inspection. I plan to learn a musical instrument. The big advantage I would have in the subject matter of human anatomy, biology and physiology is the fact that there is no closer proximity to the subject matter than having actually working on the anatomy when the anatomy is still alive.
