Future Trauma Leaders 100

Today’s investment. Tomorrow’s trauma leaders

“Mentorship is at the core of our profession. I have been blessed with tremendous mentors who have helped me pursue my passion and supported me along the way. I can think of no better way to honor my mentors by paying it forward to the Future Trauma Leaders Program” – Eileen Bulger, MD, FACS, Chair ACS Committee on Trauma

The FTL100 Campaign is part of the Committee on Trauma’s centennial, which will be celebrated throughout 2022. Our centennial has been made possible by gifts great and small by so many, and we want to take this opportunity to honor you. Donors will be commemorated in our upcoming Committee on Trauma 100th Anniversary commemorative book, “Looking to the Future through the Lens of Legacy.” Those who give $2,022 or more will be honored in the commemorative book.

During the two-year mentored program, Future Trauma Leaders collaborate on active COT projects, learn valuable skills through the ACS Leadership and Advocacy Summit, and develop relationships that support their career development. Their participation in the program has far-reaching and long-lasting effects.

“The FTL program gave me an opportunity to interface with leaders in the trauma community, much younger than I might have otherwise with an incredible group of leaders. Being immersed in the committee really changed my understanding and my perspective on trauma quality, quality improvement and performance improvement.” – Stephanie Bonne, MD, FACS, 2017-2018 Future Trauma Leaders Participant

The FTL100 Campaign supports mentorship activities that further the identification and development of surgeons with an interest in the practice of trauma surgery through the Trauma Mentoring Fund. Opportunities for a named mentoring scholarship also exist through the Future Trauma Leaders Named Mentorship Fund.
