“The collegial and comfortable environment that the M.O.R.E. team fostered allowed me to ask questions and learn from many residents and attendings not only about research writing, but also about the field of orthopedic surgery.”
“The Maimonides Orthopedic Research Experience was an incredible summer opportunity, combining academic lectures from experts in the field with interesting and relevant research opportunities.”

“As a result of the M.O.R.E. program, I feel more comfortable writing clinical manuscripts and analyzing clinical data, and I better understand the process of revising and submitting a manuscript, all while learning more about the field of orthopedics”
“Getting to work with Dr. Razi, Dr. Vakharia and others within the Department of Orthopedics was a unique and exceptional opportunity. As mentors, they provided constant feedback and were always eager and willing to educate us. With their guidance and devotion for teaching, my research article was accepted for publication in a reputable journal.”
“It was a fantastic opportunity to develop research and writing skills as well as learn more about the field [of orthopedics] through didactics with other orthopedic surgeons at Maimonides Medical Center. The learning and research opportunities provided by the program were second to none and I am thankful to everyone in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery for their incredible mentorship.”
“Dr. Razi and Dr. Vakharia are phenomenal mentors, and they provided invaluable assistance and guidance with the research, writing and editing process. Overall, the program provided excellent exposure to orthopedics and clinical research, and it was a formative medical school experience that I would highly recommend to any student interested in pursuing research in the field”.

Our Past and Present
In 1911, a group of concerned women opened a dispensary to serve the poor and needy residents of their Brooklyn neighborhood, planting the seed that would grow into Maimonides Medical Center. Over the last century, Maimonides has become a top medical care center and a vital part of New York City. Our physicians pioneered significant advancements in the field of medicine, and now, in our second century, we continue to provide excellent clinical care to our diverse patient population.
