Despite the increasing number of women entering medical and graduate school, women constitute only 12% of the academic faculty in orthopaedics (research & clinical) and 7% of practicing orthopaedists, according to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons Only 11% of the faculty at engineering schools are women, with that percentage being lower for mechanical engineering.

At The Perry Initiative, we are committed to inspiring young women to be leaders in the exciting fields of Orthopaedic Surgery and Engineering. We advance our mission principally by sponsoring hands-on outreach programs across the country for high school women.
