Advancing Science, Fostering Relationships, and Building Careers

The Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma (EAST) provides a forum for the exchange of knowledge to advance the care and rehabilitation of the injured patient. EAST places particular emphasis on interdisciplinary collaboration, scholarship, fellowship and developing leadership among early and mid-career surgeons active in the care of the injured patient.

A 501(c)(3) organization, EAST has more than 3,600 members who meet yearly at a conference at which scientific papers are presented and advances in the field are discussed. EAST also has established lectureships, scholarships and a development fund to promote, reward, and recognize individuals working in the field of injury and injury control.
