Quality trauma care hinges on funding for educational opportunities for individuals involved in all phases of care.  Oregon Trauma Research & Education Foundation has a proud history in delivering superior educational experiences that enrich medical professionals of all types and strengthens the ability for health systems throughout the region to respond to complex trauma wounds.

Pioneers in Trauma was developed in response to the critical need for training professionals so the appropriate response to trauma incidents can continue.  We believe the heroes within the medical community and their commitment to this type of care should be acknowledged and supported.  

That’s why we’ve created Pioneers in Trauma to raise public awareness about the miracles that happen in trauma.  This will also provide a cornerstone of funding to continue excellence for years to come.

Please consider participating in this landmark inaugural event that will become an annual tradition.
