Orthopedic Trauma Initiative Launched

Mark Vrahas Mass General Trauma Surgeon Mark Vrahas, MD is the Chief of Partners Orthopaedic Trauma Service and Vice Chairman of the MGH Department of Orthopaedic Surgery.


In March 2014, Harvard Medical School welcomed the Harvard Medical School Orthopedic Trauma Initiative as part of an elite group of twenty-two Institutes, Centers, Divisions and Initiatives. We are proud to be part of this group and our new name is reflected in our updated masthead. The primary purpose of this Initiative is to foster collaboration amongst the orthopedic trauma services at all four Harvard Teaching Hospitals in Boston: Mass General, Children’s, Brigham and Women’s, and Beth Israel Deaconess. This effort (and a long effort it was) formalizes our dedication to ensuring excellent educational opportunities in musculoskeletal trauma for HMS students, our HCORP Residents, and Fellows in the Harvard Orthopedic Trauma Fellowship Program. As a group, our trauma surgeons will work together to develop clinical pathways, collaborate on clinical research, and be – in large part because of our size – the premier research center nationally and internationally.
