The 11th Annual Gulf Coast Trauma Symposium will be held on April 23-24, 2020 at the beautiful Battle House Renaissance Hotel & Spa in downtown Mobile, AL.  The Gulf Coast Trauma Symposium is an annual event to educate providers in our region who treat critically injured patients. This symposium will feature a number of nationally recognized speakers discussing prehospital care for injured patients, while also highlighting the importance of injury prevention and systems of care. The overarching goal is to improve outcomes by integrating all phases of trauma care.

The RTTDC and ABLS classes will have separate registration, and class size is limited so register early.
