Welcome

to the Maryland Committee on Trauma

Over the past ten years, the Maryland COT has truly enjoyed a full and productive life. Under the outstanding leadership of Sharon Henry, MD, FACS, many ACS courses were set in motion, providing a wide range of educational activities designed to optimize the care of the trauma patient and enhance the professional development of all interested trauma providers in the State. Our ATLS (Advanced Trauma life Support) has become one the best in the country, offering monthly courses at the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore. Through a partnership between Shock Trauma and Johns Hopkins, ATOM (Advanced Trauma Operative Management) courses are also taught monthly, using experienced surgical faculty and a state-of-the-art animal lab. The ASSET (Advanced Surgical Skills for Exposure in Trauma) course is also another successful hands-on offering for surgeons, given bimonthly in the modernized cadaver lab of the University of
Maryland Medical School. In addition to the DMEP (Disaster Management and Emergency Preparedness) courses held at Shock Trauma twice a year, plans are now underway to also offer RTTDC (Rural Trauma Team Development Course) and TOPIC (Trauma Outcome Performance Improvement Course) on a regular basis.

As the Maryland COT continues to evolve, this newly expanded website is a reflection of our commitment to sustained growth with the support of new technology. Now you can easily learn about the MDCOT, register for our all our ACS-sponsored courses, register for our yearly Spring Trauma Conference and other CME programs, link to other trauma-related websites, review trauma protocols and remain abreast of exciting news and other developments involving the Committee on Trauma of the American College of Surgeons. We sincerely hope that you will frequently visit us when looking for pertinent information on trauma care and trauma education. Please do not hesitate to contact us with your ideas and suggestions. We are eager to hear from youl

With heartfelt appreciation for your commitment to quality trauma care,
