My name is Sean Flynn and I’m currently undertaking my residency in Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgery in Ireland, working in Mater Misericordiae University Hospital, Dublin. I was fortunate enough as a medical student to spend some time with Dr. Kennedy and his team at HSS in summer 2013. I undertook research in clinical and radiological outcomes of patients undergoing Autologous Osteochondral Transplantation (AOT) of the talus. This time was not only an invaluable learning experience as a medical student, but it also allowed me the opportunity to submit my work for presentation and publication. Thus far I have had poster presentations at AOFAS and an oral presentation at the 2014 ESSKA Annual Congress in Amsterdam. Currently I am awaiting publication of our paper in Foot and Ankle International, which was accepted in late 2015. All in all, being afforded the opportunity to complete research with Dr. Kennedy has been an invaluable asset not only to my career development, but also inspiring my continued learning and interest in evidence based medicine. Thank you.
