Sequential Trauma Education Program in Egypt

The trauma care training program for physicians in Egypt, which was designed 10 years ago by Jon Mark Hirshon, MD, MPH, PhD, and colleagues in Shock Trauma and at Ain Shams University in Cairo, is the focus of an article in the July-August issue of the Journal of Surgical Education. To date, 639 physicians from multiple specialties have taken the 4-day course, which has been adopted by the Egyptian Emergency Medicine Board and is required training at several Egyptian medical schools.
