Trauma, Emergency Surgery, and Surgical Critical Care Division Community Service

The Division participates in a number of outreach programs in education for the community and medical professionals on evidence-based practice and new technology that is on the horizon. Presentations include programs to further the mission of Safe Kids, as part of a nationwide network of organizations working to prevent unintentional childhood injury, the leading cause of death and disability for children ages 1 to 14.

Our burn care specialists are actively involved with the Suffolk County Volunteer Firefighters Burn Center Fund, which through community partnership was established in the mid-1980s to support our Burn Center.

Our faculty also give presentations at Rotary, Lions Club, local schools and colleges, and for religious groups in the community. In addition, the roles of trauma surgeons are discussed with prospective students considering a career in medicine and surgery.
