Dr. Earl Bogoch graduated in medicine from the University of Alberta in 1974 and, after a rotating internship at Dalhousie University, worked in rural general practice for two years. He trained in Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Toronto then worked in Davos and Zurich, Switzerland for two years, pursuing clinical and research fellowships in the surgical management of the rheumatic diseases and disordered bone remodeling in inflammatory arthritis. He accepted an academic position at the Wellesley Hospital, University of Toronto in 1985, where he became head of Orthopaedic Surgery and then moved to St. Michael’s Hospital in 2000, where he is now Medical Director of the Mobility Program (Neurology, Rheumatology, Plastic Surgery and Orthopaedic Surgery). He is past president of the Canadian Orthopaedic Research Society, and Professor in the Department of Surgery at the University of Toronto. Dr. Bogoch has published over 120 peer reviewed articles, principally on abnormal bone remodeling in inflammatory arthritis, arthritis surgery, osteoporosis, and fracture prevention. Throughout his career, his principal clinical interest has been the surgical management of arthritis. In recent years, Dr. Bogoch has become interested in health care delivery, especially systems for hip fracture prevention through fracture risk assessment in patients who present to fracture clinics with a fragility fracture. As a result of this interest, Dr. Bogoch has participated in several international committees for secondary fracture prevention. He is also interested and active in hospital program management and in medico-legal practice.
