*Designed and appropriate for burn registrars and data managers of all experience levels.

The Science of Burn Surgery is a hybrid course with lectures and resources assigned for the attendee to complete on their own schedule before the course and a hands-on lab that teaches the basic and advanced skills necessary for acute burn care at the meeting. The course replaces and expands upon principles previously taught in the Advanced Burn Provider Course and incorporates traditional methods of excision and grafting with new technologies in development. It is strongly recommended that participants complete the Advanced Burn Life Support™ (ABLS) course as a prerequisite. In preparation for the course, participants will be enrolled in an online course where they will access lectures and materials to prepare for the course.
