Welcome to the Pediatric Trauma Society
The PTS is a developing professional organization for all providers that are interested in improving outcomes for injured children through development of optimal care guidelines, education, research and advocacy.

PTS is the product of the collaborative vision of many pediatric trauma healthcare providers from around the world. Filling a void, PTS is working toward becoming the resource for both pediatric and adult trauma care providers to improve pediatric trauma care regardless of where injured children are cared for.

The hospital names have been removed to allow the data to be shown widely without anyone knowing the institution.More...
Pediatric Trauma Society 1st Annual Meeting

The 1st Annual Meeting of the Pediatric Trauma Society held November 14-15, 2014 in Chicago, IL was a huge success. We had 256 registrants representing 35 states and 8 countries, across all disciplines of the organization. Attendees gained valuable knowledge through a number of presentations that were given and posters that were displayed as part of the educational program. We are looking forward to an even greater turnout for the 2nd Annual Meeting in 2015!
