On February 2, 2012, the first Advanced Surgical Skills for Exploration in Trauma (ASSET) course was conducted in New Jersey at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. This program uses a case-based overview that is followed by hands-on exposure to key anatomic areas of the neck, chest, abdomen/pelvis and the upper and lower extremities. A low faculty to student ratio ensures adequate instructional experience.
RWJ's Emergency Department, Trauma Services and Senior Leadership introduced the hospital ED's new drive-through to improve access to the department for local emergency personnel and rescue squads.
The drive-through will be complete and open by May 27. The ribbon-cutting was held on May 16 prior to RWJ's EMS Week dinner.
Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital welcomes you to join us for a special ribbon-cutting for RWJ’s new Emergency Department drive-through:
Monday, May 16, 5:30 p.m.
(Immediately Before Our Emergency Medical Services Week Dinner)
Doctors from RWJ’s Level I Trauma Center were featured in the media following the March 14 bus crash on the New Jersey Turnpike. RWJ responded to media inquiries from print, radio and television.
