The American College of Surgeons (ACS) Committee on Trauma (COT) will present its 33rd annual Point/Counterpoint Acute Care Surgery Conference, June 1–4, 2014, at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, MD. ACS Past-President L. D. Britt, MD, MPH, FACS, FCCM, is the Course Director. The conference is designed for general surgeons and other specialty surgeons, as well as emergency physicians and intensivists, residents, nurses, and paramedics who participate in a high-performance acute care team.
Using the point/counterpoint format, a speaker offers a case in favor of a specific treatment option, and another speaker offers evidence against it. An audience discussion then follows.
