Equity, Quality, and Inclusion in Trauma Surgery Practice Ad Hoc Task Force

This ad hoc task force has been established and charged with investigating ways to enhance awareness and provide education regarding the prevalence and character of inequity in the trauma surgery profession. While inequity experienced by patients is also a significant issue, this task force will focus on equity for medical students, surgical trainees and trauma surgeons.  This task force will be in place from May 1, 2018 to January 16, 2021.
