Announcements & Events

LAC+USC Medical Center is a busy and thriving center that services the greater Los Angeles area. The division includes Trauma Surgery, Emergency Surgery, and Surgical Critical Care. Since our new program has started the service enlists 25-30 consults daily.

LAC+USC Medical Center is a level 1 American College of Surgeons-approved Trauma Center and is one of the largest and busiest centers in the United States with over 4,500 trauma alone cases per year. In addition, we are located in the center of one of the largest and busiest metropolis in the United States which also brings in a large volume of those who require emergent surgical attention whom we service.

Trauma is the leading cause of death in persons under the age of 40 and affects a substantial percentage of the US population. The estimated national annual cost for the healthcare of trauma victims exceeds $200 billion. It is this discipline that the department has contributed to most by leading the way in new treatment options and contributing with research to ultimately improve patient outcomes.

Our mission is to first and foremost provide accessible, affordable and culturally sensitive health care. Our diverse population and breadth of cases provides an excellent educational platform for our medical students, residents, and fellows.

We have 8 full time faculty members overseeing this busy service and 8 fellows actively involved in the day to day care of the service.

In addition, the Acute Care Surgery Division has a formal affiliation with the US Navy to help train Navy physicians, nurses and paramedical personnel in the field of trauma.

Through this website, visitors will be able to get a feel of the rich academic and clinical environment offered.
