As an International Resident Member, which AAOS resources do you use most and why?
As an International Resident Member, I usually use Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPGs), because AAOS develops evidence-based CPGs that cover a wide range of orthopaedic conditions and treatments. These guidelines help orthopaedic surgeons make informed clinical decisions, ensuring best practices based on current available evidence.

What’s the best advice you were ever given? Who was it from?
One of the best pieces of advice that were given to me was to always prioritize patient care and remain compassionate. This advice typically emphasizes the importance of treating patients as individuals rather than just medical cases. It highlights the significance of actively listening to patients, showing empathy, and involving them in the decision-making process. This person was my teacher and mentor prof. Karimov Murodulla.

What’s your go-to productivity trick?
As an Orthopedic Surgery Resident, my go-to productivity trick is to prioritize and plan my tasks effectively. I break down larger tasks into smaller, manageable ones and set realistic deadlines for each. This helps me stay focused and maintain a steady workflow throughout the day. Additionally, I make use of time management techniques such as the Pomodoro Technique, where I work for specific time intervals followed by short breaks. This helps me maintain concentration and prevents burnout. Lastly, I stay organized by utilizing digital tools and apps to keep track of my patient schedules, upcoming surgeries, and important deadlines. This way, I can efficiently manage my time and avoid unnecessary delays.

What’s one thing you’re currently trying to make a habit?
One thing I am currently trying to make a habit is consistently staying up-to-date with the latest research and advancements in my field. Since medicine is constantly evolving, it is crucial for me to stay informed about the latest surgical techniques, medical devices, and treatment options. This habit allows me to provide the best possible care for my patients and ensure that I am using evidence-based practices in my daily work.

What hobbies do you enjoy in your spare time?
Some of my hobbies include playing sports, going to the gym, and spending time with my family and friends.
