Interdisciplinary Polytrauma Course (PTC) Pre-Course ECTES Saturday, April 27, 2024

Poly Trauma Course (PTC) is an interdisciplinary course that addresses general surgeons, neurosurgeons, orthopedic trauma surgeons, intensivists, and emergency physicians.

For the first time this year, this course is recommended as educational content by the Swiss Trauma Society (STS).

The Polytrauma Course, Lisbon, Portugal 27/04/2024 - 27/04/2024, has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 7.0 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.

The course covers the entire management of a polytraumatized patient (rescue, emergency room, ICU, ward, rehabilitation). It includes lectures, case discussions, and practical exercises, depending on the modules selected the participant. We offer a free App (both for iOS and Android), which provides an overview of scores, scales and flowsheets to help manage severely injured patients.

This year, we provide the essential modules to achieve the accredited course in a one-day program. Get prepared and join our course website and concept
