Orthopaedic and Anesthesia Observership Opportunities for Partnering Hospitals

The Pediatric Trauma Transformation Collaborative (PTTC) is excited to announce two new educational opportunities for orthopaedic surgeons and anesthesiologists interested in improving their ability to treat pediatric patients and obtain CME credit.  Effective trauma care does not begin and end with the core trauma team.  The PTTC at Cincinnati Children’s embraces this philosophy and recognizes the important role the multi-disciplinary team plays in treating pediatric trauma patients. 

These programs are ideal for adult surgeons and anesthesiologists working at our partnering hospitals where they are required to treat pediatric patients, but at a lower level of frequency than adults.
