The Penn Trauma app was developed to facilitate communication and information sharing with the Division of Traumatology, Surgical Critical Care and Emergency Surgery in the University of Pennsylvania Health System. It was designed to provide quick access to members within the Division and affiliates who directly interface with the Division, the Divisional calendar of events, call schedules, and resource materials. Additional features provide members with the ability to share professional news, have direct access to CMGs, resident onboarding materials as well as links to professional sites. This application is not open to the public and is strictly for the members of the Division at The Trauma Center at Penn.
