The Arizona Trauma Association (AzTA) is excited to announce that our 14th Annual Southwest Trauma & Acute Care Symposium is happening on November 16-17, 2023 at Phoenix Convention Center in Phoenix, Arizona.

Meeting Date and Location

Symposium, November 16-17, 2023

Phoenix Convention Center, Phoenix, Arizona


Last year’s symposium was a great success with 2,400 in-person and virtual attendees. Over 50 hospitals, military bases, and individuals were represented from within the United States, Mexico and Canada. Our audience consists of surgeons, physicians, advance practice providers, nurses, EMS, trauma program leaders 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 2023 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.
