EAST Careercast logo Why Trauma Surgeons Need to be Leaders in Community Outreach and Injury Prevention - Careercast #37

In this Careercast, Dr. Stefan Leichtle talks with Dr. Mike Aboutanos, Chief of the Division of Acute Care Surgical Services at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA. Dr. Aboutanos explains why a trauma surgeon's job doesn't start and end in the trauma bay, and why trauma surgeons are uniquely qualified to be leaders in injury and violence prevention. He describes his own journey into becoming an expert in this field, gives examples of the many successful programs at VCU, and has valuable tips on how to get started in community outreach and injury prevention at your own institution.
