EAST Education Center


The Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma is pleased to be partnering with CECentral to offer online continuing medical education to the Trauma and Acute Care Surgery Medical Community. EAST collaborates with the Pediatric Trauma Society on the development of the Pediatric Trauma educational activities that are available through the EAST Education Center.

The EAST Online Education Center was initially supported by the EAST Foundation through an unrestricted grant from Edwards Lifesciences.
