Definitive Surgical Trauma Care (DSTC®) Course AND the Advanced Surgical Skills for Exposure in Trauma (ASSET®)
We are offering a unique educational opportunity in advanced Trauma Surgery. The DSTC Course®, designed exclusively for Surgeons, is being held from April 7-9, 2020. The training will combine the lessons and skills from ASSET with DSTC. The International Association for Trauma Surgery and Intensive Care (IATSIC), part of the International Society of Surgery, has been an international forum for trauma surgery since 1991. The American College of Surgeons (ACS) has been providing ASSET courses since 2010.
These courses were 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 and ASSET are both 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/ASSET course is sponsored by the Trauma Research and Education Fund (Vancouver) with industry support. Participation is limited to a maximum of 20 registrants only.
This is a rare opportunity for a small group of Surgeons to work intensively over 3 days with highly experienced teaching faculty.
