Burn Surgery Ad Hoc Task Force

In recent decades, the field of burn care has grown increasingly independent from the broader field of trauma. This 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.
