We recognize the unique nature of this patient population and aim to develop innovative approaches to the care of wounded-warriors. Trauma related research and military specific quality improvement initiatives focus on advancing care of our service members in deployed environments and in military treatment facilities. We recognize a need for strong physician leadership in military medicine and aim to develop the next generation of Traumatologists and Surgical Intensivists leaders through formal didactics, mentorship and faculty development initiatives.
