Trauma Surgery & Acute Care Open Partnerships


The HEmostatic REsuscitation and Trauma Induced Coagulopathy (HERETIC) Symposium was introduced last year by The University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Military Medicine Research and The Trauma and Transfusion Medicine Research Center (TTMRC), along with the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine and in collaboration with the THOR Network. The goal of HERETIC is to bring together a rich mix of researchers, providers, the Department of Defense, and private and public research program managers to disseminate and discuss the most up-to-date research and practices in the field of hemostatic resuscitation and trauma induced coagulopathy.

MATTOX VEGAS TCCACS 2024 The Mattox Vegas TCCACS takes a leadership role in providing a continuing education venue for complex operative and critical care surgical challenges, with major trauma continuing to be the epitome of such challenges. Our faculty are physicians in active practice who continue “in the trenches” day after day, night after night, dealing with the most complex surgical challenges. This stellar faculty presents practical surgical information, cutting edge data, and contemporary issues. Past attendees have aptly described the conference content, “An incredible journey in surgical knowledge, with “tour guides” whose expertise and personalities make every excursion a uniquely exceptional experience.” “Amazingly wonderful, fast paced experience – like drinking water from a fire hose; it blew me away!”
