For the past 30 years, the Panamerican Trauma Society has represented all of the Americas in an attempt to improve trauma care for everyone. The society has evolved, and we seek to continue to make the PTS all that it can be. The 2018 meeting in Cartagena, Colombia was a great success...
The Panamerican Trauma Society is proud to announce the sponsorship of multi-center studies to facilitate the design and execution of multi-center projects.
