A one-day simulation based course involving the team-based resuscitation of critically injured trauma patients. There will be 3 simulation scenarios, and an airway station including surgical airway practice on animal models.

Crisis resource management (CRM) principles of leadership, closed loop communication, teamwork, resource utilization, situational awareness, and problem solving will be emphasized during the debriefing sessions.
