Definitive Surgical Trauma Care (DSTC) Course® – April 4-6, 2018

CLICK HERE to download detailed course description and other information

We are offering a unique educational opportunity in advanced Trauma Surgery.  The DSTC Course®, designed exclusively for Surgeons, is being held from April 4-6, 2018.  The International Association for Trauma Surgery and Intensive Care (IATSIC), part of the International Society of Surgery, has since 1991 been an international forum for trauma surgery.


The course was developed for qualified surgeons with trauma as an integral (although possibly infrequent) part of their practice and designed to assist in their decision-making and operative approach relating to serious trauma. DSTC is a response to the lack of written material and teaching on strategic issues of resuscitation, early definitive care, and surgical priorities.  It assumes all of the ATLS® principles and builds on them.


The Vancouver DSTC course is sponsored by the Trauma Research and Education Fund (Vancouver) with industry support. Participation is limited to a maximum of 20 registrants only.
