Dear Colleagues and Readers,
Welcome to the official website of the Poly Trauma Course (PTC). After the widespread implementation of the ATLS algorithm, which tremendously improved the acute treatment of severely injured patients, a course covering the care during the entire hospitalization was missing. PTC is thought to fill this gap.
PTC is an interdisciplinary course, and we intend to unite the knowledge of general surgeons, neurosurgeons, orthopedic trauma surgeons, intensive care, and emergency physicians. Moreover, this course covers the whole clinical course of a polytraumatized patient (from preclinics, trauma bay, ICU, ward toward rehabilitation).
PTC is led by an international group of experts and certified for quality management.
It covers lectures, case discussions, and practical exercises, depending on the modules selected by the participant.
The PTC App (available for iPhone and Android) provides a quick and compact overview of surgical knowledge helpful for the management of severely injured patients.
