Burn Surgery Committee

In recent decades, the field of burn care has grown increasingly independent from the broader field of trauma.  First formed as an ad hoc task force was established in January 2019 to help Burn surgeons develop collaborative relationships with their acute surgery colleagues to organize, grow, and/or lead scholarship and fellowship opportunities with their peers. The ad hoc task force was made a full committee in September 2019.
