      I began my healthcare career as a dialysis technician during my sophomore year of my undergraduate studies at Southern Connecticut State University in New Haven, CT.  After completing my degree I was promoted to Unit Administrator of the Bridgeport Dialysis unit and spent 12 total years ultimately achieving the title of Regional Director for the Southwestern Connecticut market.  After a 3 year hiatus from healthcare operations while working for a pharmaceutical manufacturer, I returned to operations in the field of Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine at Saint Mary's Hospital in Waterbury, CT.  This was an area that I truly enjoyed and in 2007 was awarded National Healing Corporations, Program Director of the Year honors at their national meeting in Orlando, Florida.  In 2009, I was asked to develop the R.A.C. (Recovery Audit Contractor) program as well as manage the Case Management department at for Saint Mary's Hospital which I accepted and successfully executed. In 2015, I shifted to the medical group within the organization and assumed responsibility for all surgical, medical specialty as well as primary care practices.  I was instrumental in stabilizing the practices and then driving significant growth in areas such as gastroenterology, surgery, and other specialties. In addition, I added new services such as Neurosurgery, Endocrine Surgery, Neurology, Podiatry, and other over my 5 years in that role. In summary, I possess over 30 years of healthcare operations management experience in the outpatient, inpatient and physician practice management areas.  I have been fortunate to have had these opportunities not only in different modalities but also in a wide range of specialties.  This has given me a well rounded view in healthcare which I call upon to serve me in my role here at Yale University.

    • Ensign Professor of Orthopaedics & Rehabilitation; Chair, Orthopaedics & Rehabilitation; Chief, Yale New Haven Hospital; Affiliated Faculty, Yale Institute for Global Health

      Dr. Lisa Lattanza is the chair of the Department of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation at the Yale School of Medicine. She obtained her medical degree at the Medical College of Ohio (now the University of Toledo College of Medicine and Life Sciences). She did her internship at the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, completed her residency in orthopaedic surgery at the University of Missouri Kansas City and did a fellowship in hand surgery at Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons/Roosevelt Hospital. She did additional fellowship training in pediatric hand and upper extremity at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children in Dallas, Texas. She joined the faculty of UCSF in 1999. Although Lattanza treats all conditions and traumatic injuries in the upper extremity, she specializes in post-traumatic and congenital reconstruction for pediatric and adult elbow problems, treating patients from around the country and across the globe. She is a world- renowned leader in patient-specific 3D surgical planning and technology for deformity correction. She utilized her expertise in this area when she led a team to perform the first elbow-to-elbow transplant in the world in 2016, transplanting a patient’s left elbow into his right arm to give him one functioning extremity after a devastating accident. Using 3D computing, she also pioneered a new classification system and approach to the treatment of Chronic Monteggia Fracture Dislocations in children. Lattanza frequently travels to Nicaragua and other countries on mission trips to perform hand surgery and is eager to expand upon the global initiatives already in place in the department. Lattanza’s research interests include 3D surgical planning for deformity correction, elbow instability and other post-traumatic elbow conditions in children and adults, and diversity in orthopaedic surgery, specifically the underrepresentation of women. When she began her appointment at the School of Medicine in September 2019, she became one of only two current female chairs of orthopaedics in the U.S. In 2009, she co-founded the Perry Outreach Program to increase exposure of high school girls to orthopaedic surgery and biomechanical engineering. Now known as the Perry Initiative, the program is named after Lattanza’s mentor, Jacquelin Perry, MD, who was one of the first women orthopaedic surgeons in the country. It began with 18 high school girls in San Francisco and has now reached over 10,000 high school, college, and medical students across the country. Lattanza’s research has shown that young women who complete the program are applying and matching to orthopaedic surgery residencies at a rate of about 24%, compared to the national average of about 14%. Her goal is to reach 30% within the next three years. Lattanza has received numerous awards for both her clinical care and outreach efforts. She received UCSF’s Compassionate Physician award in 2013 and Exceptional Physician Award in 2014, the Jefferson Award for Community Service in 2014, and has been ranked by her peers as a Bay Area Top Physician for multiple years. In addition to her other leadership roles, she served as president of the Ruth Jackson Orthopaedic Society in 2017 and is active in the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the American Society for Surgery of the Hand, and the American Orthopaedic Association.

    • I am a Yale medical student who is currently pursuing a research year with the Vascular Medical OutcomeS (VAMOS) lab, where I investigate how social determinants of health impact carotid revascularization outcomes. In addition, I currently sit on the Yale Safety and Security Committee as a Student Representative. My current career goal is becoming an academic medicine cardiologist who conducts clinical outcomes research while providing mentorship to underserved/underrepresented medical students. My premedical, public health, and clinical endeavors have largely been shaped by working with Hispanic/Latino and uninsured/low-income populations. I have also worked with Hispanic/Latino populations through premedical mentorship, serving as the premed liaison for YSM’s Latino Medical Student Association / National Medical Student Association as well as leading the MD cohort for the inaugural Yale PATHS program, where Yale MD / PhD / MD-PhD students provide longitudinal, individualized mentorship for underserved/underrepresented premedical students across the country. I also serve as a medical school Personal Statement Reviewer at the Yale Office of Career Strategy, and advise premedical students in my own time. As Student Representative on the Yale Safety and Security Committee, I help the committee identify and manage safety/security projects such as traffic safety. Prior, I served as YSM Traffic Safety Representative, where I brought classmate concerns to respective committees, advocated and wrote letters/letter templates for local hearings concerning traffic safety, and educated/updated peers on local traffic safety issues. Traffic safety/design is often treated as an afterthought in both the medical and public
