NEW! AAST/ESTES Emergency Surgery Course
The Emergency Surgery Course (ESC®), a joint collaboration between ESTES and AAST, aims to aid surgeons in non-trauma emergency surgery by providing them the know-how and decision-making skills needed within daily practice. The course consists of theoretical sessions, case scenarios, and state-of-the-art videos. The course is presented/taught in an interactive format from beginning to end. Interested in holding an ESC® at your institution? Contact Rachel Sass, AAST Education Manager at email@example.com for more details! For more information about ESC®, click here.
