education and outreach efforts,” says Carlos Prietto, MD, MEd, executive director of Hoag Orthopedics.
Today, Vanessa serves as program manager and is pursuing an MBA in Health Administration.
Building on the success of its post orthopedic residency fellowship programs, HOI is currently developing its newest fellowship program in Foot & Ankle Surgery. Under the leadership of Jonathan Kaplan, MD, who is fellowship-trained in foot and ankle surgery, HOI continues to focus on building a strong infrastructure for data collection, research and publication in foot and ankle surgery, which will be fundamental to the program.
When the application cycle opens in 2021, HOI’s Foot & Ankle Fellowship Program will emphasize minimally invasive surgery, something not all programs offer, and help fellows establish a solid foundation in foot and ankle surgery that they can build on as they progress in their career. Fellows will be exposed to all surgeries within the specialty, including those with complex pathology requiring critical decision-making.

As part of its commitment to developing the next generation
of health care leaders, Hoag Orthopedics empowers education coordinators to assume leading roles in program development and other projects that advance the organization’s mission, providing
mentorship and guidance along the way.
Vanessa Glotzbach joined Hoag Orthopedics in 2016 as one of its first education coordinators. In this role, Vanessa was empowered to develop the organization’s education programs by producing community education events, creating new partnerships around the internship program and organizing the volunteer program. She was also entrusted with managing the existing fellowship programs, giving her the experience and confidence to take the lead in building the organization’s two newest fellowship programs in Foot & Ankle Surgery and Health Policy & Management.

 HOI Nursing team members with Dr. James Caillouette at the 2019 Nursing Symposium.
On October 7, 2019, Hoag Orthopedic Institute hosted the 11th Annual Nursing Symposium at the Allan & Sandy Fainbarg Community Education Center. Approximately 110 orthopedic nurses, perioperative staff and other clinicians working in orthopedic settings came from all over California to attend the 2019 event. The Orange County Chapter of the National Association of Orthopedic Nurses (NAON) provided the program. Topics included orthopedic sports injuries in adolescents, total knee versus partial knee replacement surgeries, non-operative treatments for spinal musculoskeletal issues and others. Once again, attendees shared excellent feedback about the event.
