Critical care training makes trauma care more attractive as a career. Discussion.
American Association for the Surgery of Trauma. Annual session. New Orleans LA (USA), 1993/09/23.
One recent report has prompted concern that surgical residents are no longer concerned in providing trauma care as a significant portion of their careers.
In 1986, we linked our trauma and critical care services.
We surveyed all chief residents who finished in the past 10 years, comparing the 5 years before the linking of trauma and critical care to the period since.
Between 1982 and 1987, 3 of the 45 finishing residents (7%) pursued trauma fellowships, then trauma care as a career.
Since 1987, 12 finishing residents (30% of the total and 33% of those pursuing fellowship training) trained in trauma/critical care.
Nine currently pursue trauma care as a career.
Two others are academic trauma surgeons without fellowship training and one other practices general surgery with trauma care as a main focus.
