While seperate Trauma CME is no longer required by the American College of Surgery for emergency medicine faculty, the value of this interdisciplinary conference continues to be recognized. Traumatically injured patients make up 28% of Emergency Department visits (Center for Disease Control data). Our faculty need to be prepared to provide high quality care with the best current practices.
