Trauma, Critical Care and Acute Care Surgery Research

 

The Division of Trauma, Critical Care and Acute Care Surgery at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas is required to publish at least 20 trauma-related, peer-reviewed journal articles every three years to maintain its designation as one of only four designated adult Level I Trauma Centers in Dallas.

 

More than simply being able to maintain its designation, though, the division engages in research because it and its members are devoted to both better understanding their patients as well as improving the care the patients receive. This is evidenced by the fact that since 2013, the division has published an average of 18 peer-reviewed journal articles and 27 presentations annually. Our hospital coverage includes 21 counties, over 5 million lives and more than 2,400 patients treated annually.
