Becoming a Neuroscientist: The Impact of Access, Mentorship and Advocacy

Dr. Gentry Patrick and his colleagues have modeled building strategic partnerships and leveraging shared interests, networks, and resources to tackle challenges facing under-resourced and URM students in the higher education setting. The PATH-ways to STEM (PATHS) through Enhanced Access and Mentorship Program is a scholarship program that is built to increase the number and persistence of underserved and underrepresented minorities (URM) in STEM. The PATHS Program has not only demonstrated to UC San Diego how the institution can better listen to, learn from, and support these students. It has also galvanized a network of local and national partners and investors who are now collaboratively committed to leveraging the student perspective to broadly drive evidence based transformation. This pilot scholarship program is proving the valuation of "out of the box" meta-innovation across social, educational, and professional platforms.

Raised in South central Los Angeles, Dr. Gentry Patrick was one of the "lucky few." He had the talent and was fortunate enough to understand, through his family and later his mentors, his capacity for and claim to a successful future in science. While he is often celebrated in his representation as a highly accomplished black researcher and professor in neuroscience, he is adamant that he is not an anomaly. Dr. Patrick is dedicated to sharing his story not just as an example of what is possible through access, mentorship, and advocacy, but more importantly why we are all called to invest ourselves in rebuilding an educational infrastructure for all students where these pieces are culturally interwoven. Dr. Patrick’s personal experience and evidence based retrospective – his story – are the lodestar of our efforts.

Best Practices in Hip Imaging

This lecture will review best practices for imaging recommendations and imaging features of developmental hip dysplasia, osteonecrosis of the hip and femoroacetabular impingement. Practice parameters and guidelines for the performance of hip ultrasound, radiographs and MRI will be highlighted from the American College of Radiology Appropriateness Criteria, guidelines from the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine and European Society of Musculoskeletal Radiology, and the Balgrist University Hospital Algorithm from Zurich, Switzerland.
