  • About the Symposium

    The Arizona Trauma Association (AzTA) is excited to announce that our 13th Annual Southwest Trauma & Acute Care Symposium is happening in-person on November 17-18, 2022, at the Omni Resort & Spa at Montelucia in Phoenix, Arizona.

    Last year’s symposium was a great success with 1,200 virtual attendees. Over 50 hospitals were represented from within the United States and Canada. Our audience consists of surgeons, physicians, physician extenders, nurses, EMS, registrars, and other healthcare professionals who are interested in trauma and critical care.

    We are excited to bring everyone together again this year with both a live in-person event and a virtual simulcast option. This premier event brings together world-class speakers and participants to give us the latest updates and most advanced knowledge in care of the injured patient. Our 2022 symposium plans are well underway, and your support is vital to our continued success. STACS has always provided incredible national speakers and great opportunities to meet peers in the trauma and acute care surgery community. We will once again have many outstanding speakers delivering concise lectures on relevant trauma and critical care topics.

    Each year, we incorporate feedback about the conference and the associated activities to improve the networking between our attendees and our exhibitor partners.
