Continuing Education

The OHSU trauma center is actively involved in the education of interns and residents, as well as medical, nursing, and pharmacy students in trauma care, while the OHSU division of trauma, critical care and acute care surgery offers a fully accredited surgical critical care fellowship. In addition to our ongoing medical education program, the Trauma Center sponsors the annual northwest states trauma conference which provides trauma educational opportunities for physicians, nurses, paramedics, and other healthcare providers from rural areas in Oregon and surrounding states. The trauma center also hosts advanced trauma life support courses. Our trauma surgeons, emergency medicine physicians and nurses travel throughout Oregon providing dozens of trauma case reviews, lectures, and the rural trauma team development course for referring hospitals and their staff.
