EAST Master Classes

The fields of trauma, surgical critical care, and emergency general surgery are in a state of constant evolution, and frequently require the adoption of new techniques, procedures, technologies, concepts, or treatment paradigms. The EAST Master Classes is a series of live webinars focused on one particular area of new development, techniques, or technology that is of interest to the EAST members and that will promote greater understanding of cutting edge developments affecting the field, and help members to assess the potential for incorporation or adoption into their practice or local program/center.


EAST Storycasts are a series of audio interviews that addresses important events, discoveries and people in trauma and emergency general surgery told by the people who were there. These stories are our history. Always surprising and often humorous, they come from the giants on whose shoulders we stand.
