Trauma Surgery Journal Club

Welcome to the Trauma Surgery Journal Club! This web-based journal club is designed to provide selected articles focused on relevant Trauma Surgery topics to meet the ongoing professional development needs of trauma surgeons and teams.

This web-based educational program provides surgeons with opportunities to read and reflect on current journal articles that highlight research and clinical topics that can positively impact the delivery of care to patients.

This web-based journal series provides a listing of selected articles including the publically available abstracts and a post-test for each article. Participants are expected to read each article and complete the post-test successfully in order to receive AMA PRA Category 1 creditTM  and American Board of Surgery MOC Part II points.

Access to full text articles can be obtained through one of three ways & participants will need to obtain and read the articles BEFORE taking the post test:
