Real World Experience

We partner with several outstanding universities to offer aspiring medical school students an opportunity to gain valuable real-world experience in an orthopaedic clinic environment. These student volunteers work hand- in-hand with physicians, physical therapists and athletic trainers through the development and collection of research data.

Where are they now?

Ashley Bee Anderson, MD, Orthopaedic Surgical Resident, Walter Reed National Military Medical Center

Ashley was an intern from 2010-2011, a Research Assistant from 2011 - 2016 and returned after first year of medical school in the summer of 2013.  Today Ashley is participating in an orthopaedic surgical residency at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

"in retrospect now as an orthopaedic resident I feel like the time at the Hawkins Foundation was almost a mini sports fellowship that has prepared me well for each step along the journey both as a clinician and scientist. It gave me a network of life long mentors.  I was also inspired to focus on continued clinical curiosity as well as the importance of evidence based medicine, a team approach, and patient outcome centered care."
