Major Trauma Training Interface Group
There are two fellowships overseen by this TIG:
The Resuscitative Pathway
The resuscitative pathway, which will be most suitable to general and vascular surgeons, will enhance those technical skills required to save life in the early stages of the major trauma patients hospital management.
The Major Trauma Leader Pathway
The major trauma leader pathway will be designed to develop the major trauma leader role, providing leadership in the care of the major trauma patient from the trauma room through to transfer to rehabilitation. This would be suitable for any surgeon or physician wanting to develop their major trauma leadership skills.
There will be some cross over between the two pathways which will be encouraged, as long as the primary objectives of the two defined roles continue to be met. The curriculum for the the two pathways of the Major Trauma TIG can be found in the General Surgery, Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Plastic Surgery, Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgery and Vascular Surgery parent curricula here.
