Led by a skilled group of surgeons, critical care physicians and trauma specialists, the TRAPS Course is designed as a stepwise approach which enables the participant to learn the theory, revise the anatomy, practice with the equipment and master life-saving surgical skills in a high-fidelity environment. This process enables mastery of the procedures and provides better understanding of pitfalls that can present.
