Definitive Surgical Trauma Care

The DSTC™ and DATC™ courses are the world’s largest international trauma surgery courses.

Designed by trauma surgeons and anaesthesiologists; the courses are advanced live tissue skills courses, intended to enhance both the trauma decision making skills, teamwork and surgical skills of the participants.

DSTC™ is aimed specifically at surgeons and senior trainees who are involved in the management of patients with major trauma, especially where expertise or resources may be limited.

Course Overview

The Courses provide advanced training, utilizing cadavers for demonstration and practice of surgical vascular and airway access in the neck and certain thoracic and limb exposures. A live tissue laboratory is used to teach anaesthesia techniques and surgical skills for complex procedures in unstable patients including damage control, liver packing and management of haemorrhage from multiple sites.
