European Trauma Course Trauma Care – The Team Approach


The European Trauma Course (ETC) is an innovative multidisciplinary course aiming at all junior doctors involved in the initial care for severely injured patients. The novel modular course concept is scenario based and provides state of the art team training in workshops and skill stations reflecting the prevailing European practice. Candidates participate both as team leaders and team members. The course runs over 2½ days and is, apart from two lectures and one demonstration entirely ‘hands on’.

 During the first 2 days all major topics of trauma resuscitation are covered. On the third day there will be final practice workshops and assessments. Participants are expected to be familiar with Basic and Advanced Life Support.
