About the WTA
The Western Trauma Association is committed to the improvement of trauma care through research, education, sharing of clinical experiences, and the development of physicians of all specialties who are involved in the care of trauma patients. The goals of the Association are not only the intellectual growth attained through increased knowledge, but also the emotional growth attained through camaraderie and interaction with family and friends in an environment conducive to winter sports.
Together with the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma (AAST), National Trauma Institute (NTI) American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma (COT), Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma (EAST) and American Trauma Society (ATS), the Western Trauma Association (WTA) launched the Coalition for National Trauma Research (CNTR) in September 2014. CNTR believes that a robust research infrastructure is long over-due, pointing to a 40-year history of federally acknowledged research funding inadequacies.
