I am looking for a PhD/Ortho program in the U.S. Do you know where I can get a ranking of them?
Thank you!

Topic: Study clubs
Posted: Tuesday, April 18, 2006 12:55:37 PM
Initially the study club was simply a bunch of friends and colleagues getting together to discuss the ins and outs of the profession. Today, study clubs range from organizations that are extremely structured, with established curricula, to gatherings that are almost entirely impromptu. Some are thematic, concentrating on investments, diagnostic imaging, or specific clinical techniques such as Bioprogressive, Zero-Base, and Invisalign. Members of these groups, who may be geographically scattered, stay in touch through occasional meetings, conference calls, or video conferencing.

Whatever form they take, study clubs are invaluable resources for the transmission and communication of knowledge and new ideas. This month’s new topic in the JCO Online Study Club is just that: study clubs.
What kinds of groups do you belong to?
How do they work?
What are the best ideas you’ve picked up?

Topic: A new golden age of orthodontics?
Posted: Monday, April 10, 2006 5:32:26 PM
Editor's Note: Each month, the JCO Online Study Club will cover a different topic of interest to orthodontists, with links provided to appropriate articles within the Online Archive. Note that this month's articles are all free for anyone to access, whether or not you have a JCO print subscription or complete Online Archive access. Future discussions may include some restricted articles. Your suggestions for further topics are welcome.)

Are we standing on the threshold of a "New Golden Age of Orthodontics"? Will a shortage of new orthodontists and the information age combine to create super-practices?
In a recent JCO Editor's Corner [May 2002], Dr. Robert Keim noted the sweeping embrace of the digital process by the orthodontic community and its profound effect on our ability to recall and share information. Dr. Keim also discussed a potential shortage of orthodontic graduates, the increased public awareness of the benefits of orthodontic treatment, and the resultant impact on the future of the specialty. Describing his own son's interest in orthodontics, Dr. Keim concluded: "How could I not encourage my son's desires to enter our profession? We are clearly at the dawn of a new Golden Age. The future is his."
In previous JCO Editor's Corners, Dr. Larry White [August 2001 and December 1999] and Dr. Eugene Gottlieb [April 1996 and April 1993] gave their own perspectives on the Golden Age of Orthodontics. All in all, these editorials provide plenty of food for thought about the future of our dynamic profession.
As JCO debuts its Online Archive, I invite you to participate in a discussion about the New Golden Age of Orthodontics. Follow the above links to the Archive to review the referenced editorials, then reply to this posting with your own opinions.
