11th Annual Trauma Symposium

We all made it through 2020, but some of the affects are still ahead of us, so NOTS has decided to make our yearly event virtual for one more year.

We are also excited that we will be offering this for FREE. This is to honor all of our front line workers during this pandemic. 

Our NOTS mission is to provide the highest quality of care to patients across our region, and this symposium is great way to get your CME requirements while expanding your knowledge in trauma today. 

This activity has been approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. (7 CMEs)
