The Division of Trauma Surgery

The Division of Traumatology was formed in 1998. The main objective of the Division is to guarantee the best standard of care in traumatology in Europe by ensuring that training in traumatology is maintained at the highest level.

The Division operates in close collaboration with the national societies for traumatology and the European Society of Trauma and Emergency Surgery (ESTES). The Division shall achieve its objectives by setting and recommending standards to the UEMS and the EBS and by encouraging health authorities, national and international societies for trauma to live up to such standards concerning all aspects of professional practice in trauma surgery.
