Acute Care Surgery is an evolving specialty that takes the principals of trauma care (organized teams, evidence-based processes and procedures, and continuous quality improvement) and applies them to patients with other urgent, time-sensitive surgical conditions. Acute care surgery involves three central components: trauma, critical care and emergency surgery. Over the last 20 years, acute care surgical services have become increasingly responsible for the management of emergency general surgery across the country. As this surgical field continues to expand, so does the utilization of advanced practitioners within it. Mayo Clinic is uniquely positioned to share expert knowledge in this expanding specialty field. This course is designed to ensure that advanced practitioners enhance both knowledge and skill sets in acute care surgery. Live and Livestream offerings.

Target Audience - This course is designed for advanced practitioners including physician assistants and nurse practitioners. In addition, physicians, clinical nurse specialist, nurse educators and nursing staff in trauma, acute care surgery, emergency medicine, and hospital medicine may benefit from this course.
