The ETC was developed in response to the need for a multidisciplinary team focused trauma course for senior clinical staff. Through collaboration of the ESAIC, ERC, ESTES and EuSEM, the European Trauma Course Organisation (ETCO) was formed. We ran our first ETC course in Malta in 2002.
We now welcome over 2000 candidates internationally every year. Our course is provided by hospitals, training providers and resuscitation councils in over 20 countries. By working together we are able to provide the core components of the course, with the ability to adapt to local practice. This way we know your course will be both applicable to you local healthcare system and adhere to the high standards associated with ETC.
