History of the Shock Trauma Center
The R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center at the University of Maryland was established in 1969. Dr. Cowley's pioneering vision of a fully-integrated statewide system of trauma care led to the development of arguably the most highly-evolved system for the delivery of trauma care in the world.
STC receives approximately 8,00 primary trauma admissions annually of which 40% arrive by air and 60% by ground, a high proportion of which have multi-organ system injuries.
The Division of Orthopaedic Traumatology at the University of Maryland consists of 10 fellowship-trained orthopaedic traumatologists who perform approximately 3,000 cases annually. The five orthopaedic trauma fellows at Shock Trauma reap the benefits of this unparalleled volume of high-energy traumatic injuries in a highly academic yet clinically-oriented setting.
Objectives of Shock Trauma Fellowship
Our goal is to produce leaders in academic orthopaedic traumatology who are committed to patient care, education and the advancement of orthopaedic trauma knowledge. We emphasize clinical excellence in the management of complex patients and injury patterns, and provide a rigorous didactic teaching program and a fully-mentored and structured research experience. In so doing, we produce fellows who are equally well-prepared to excel as clinicians, educators and researchers in the field of orthopaedic trauma.
