Honored Mentor

Amy Kapatkin


Dr. Amy Kapatkin has had a significant and positive impact on my career, first as my residency supervisor and now as a colleague. Her determination to practice exceptional evidence-based medicine is inspirational and her dedication to teaching is greatly contributing to the field of Orthopedic Surgery. I am forever grateful for her mentorship.

Mentoring residents and young faculty are like raising children; I learn as much from them as they learn from me. I watch them grow into amazing skilled people who will be the leaders and mentors of the next generation. I love that I can help them reach their goals. This is truly an honor to know I made a difference in your lives. Thank you for this honor.
