2020 Trauma Symposium


Due to the rapidly evolving nature of COVID-19 and our desire to slow its progression, the UNMC Center for Continuing Education has made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Trauma Symposium. The planning committee is working to reschedule this educational activity soon. If you are registered for this educational event, we will send you an email when a new date has been selected.

Questions? Please contact Jackie Farley via email.
