The Slocum Research & Education Foundation was founded in 1990 to create an organization dedicated to improving musculoskeletal care for all patients through community-based research and education. The foundation was named in honor of Donald B. Slocum, a world-recognized leader in orthopedics.
As one of the founding fathers of Sports Medicine as an orthopedic sub-specialty, Dr. Slocum was inducted in the American Orthopedic Society for Sports Medicine’s (AOSSM) Hall of Fame in 2001. The AOSSM highest honor was awarded to Dr. Slocum due to his pioneering of the organization’s field through innovation and leadership. In 2013, the honor was also bestowed upon Dr. Stanley James, who continues to practice at the Slocum Center for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine.
The Slocum Foundation is unique – like Dr. Slocum. We see opportunities to improve patient care and outcomes in ways that others in orthopedic practices haven’t yet adopted. To carry the Slocum name is to commit to pushing boundaries, striving to answer the most difficult questions and demonstrating a passion for service to our profession, fellow healthcare providers and community.
Over the past twenty years, the Slocum Foundation participated in several of research, education and community-benefit activities that set us apart from all other academic medical centers.
