History

Three of the founders of Trauma Conference International (TCI) were also founding members of the Arizona Trauma Association (ATA) in 2006 – Drs. David Notrica, Peter Rhee and Chris Salvino.

The three trauma surgeons grew ATA’s regional conference into a nationwide event and hosted it for seven years. Trauma Conference International hosts a simulcast of the event and equally as important, the conference is broadcast live in both English and Spanish. In 2016 and 2017, TCI reached thousands of trauma surgeons, advanced practice providers, and nurses in countries spanning the Americas.

Drs. Notrica, Rhee and Salvino understood that despite their successes, there was a need for a truly international trauma conference in which everything was shared equally from one world region to another.

To that end, the three doctors recognized that board positions, speakers, location, and even language, should be shared like never before. Simulcast would continue to play an integral part in the way that trauma education is delivered.
