Definitive Surgical Trauma Skills

The Definitive Surgical Trauma Skills (DSTS) course teaches surgeons how to make life saving decisions and perform under pressure in a trauma and emergency environment. The course covers decision making, epidemiology and emerging technologies, as well as the essentials of the relevant surgical anatomy including demonstrations on real anatomical surgical prosections.

The course is run by the Royal College of Surgeons, and all London courses are held at the Wolfson Surgical Skills Centre.

Kings Trauma Skills Course

This course is designed to complement rather than to replace the existing college courses and allows the opportunity of combining local SOPs and fresh frozen cadaveric multidisciplinary teaching.  In this respect the course is the first in Europe to provide this opportunity. Candidates will be supported by a high standard of faculty members from the Royal college DSTS, PERT and neurosurgical courses as well as strong local representation from our cardiothoracic, General Surgical, Vascular and MTC groups.

Although this course is not the DSTS or IATSIC DSTC course, the curriculum is entirely in keeping with that currently taught, with additional reference to our local networks and the dilemmas we face as a trauma team.
