In the Explorers program, high school students meet once a month for eight sessions to listen to physicians, physician assistants, and physical therapists speak on various orthopedic topics. Each class includes a lecture and interactive activity.
This Explorers session features Dr. Scott Shawen of the OrthoCarolina Foot & Ankle Institute.
Prior to joining OrthoCarolina, Dr. Shawen served as an Associate Professor of Surgery at Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland and Residency Program Director and Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Service Chief at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. While at Walter Reed, Dr. Shawen focused on lower extremity trauma and amputation surgery and was intimately involved in the care of wounded soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. Dr. Shawen deployed with the 14th Combat Support Hospital and supported the 7th Group Special Forces during his tour, caring for many local nationals and injured coalition soldiers.
