Trauma General Surgery Recognition

21 Feb 2013 07:36 | Anonymous
The Trauma Association of Canada is proud to announce that Trauma General Surgery was recently granted recognition as an Area of Focused competence and a Diploma bearing speciality by the Royal College, the first surgical specialty to be granted such recognition. The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons recently created this categorization to recognize additional training and expertise undertaken by specialists that may allow such physicians to participate in activities related to public education, advocacy, leadership, research and the creation of health policy, without causing further fragmentation of the parent specialty in a specific facet of medicine. Through the creation of the Area of Focused Competence in Trauma General Surgery, we will develop national standards for fellowship training and evaluation. As well, Trauma General Surgery Diplomats will be even better positioned to advocate for health of populations under the auspices of the Trauma Association of Canada.
