The University of Mississippi Medical Center serves as the only Level I trauma center for the state of 2 million people. Approximately 4,000 patients were admitted to The Trauma Service last year. In our unique role, our center is selected out for complicated injuries. Injuries that we commonly treat include periarticular fractures, acetabular fractures, pelvic ring injuries, and polytrauma.

The Trauma Team consists of two faculty members, 4 residents (PFY 1,2,3,4) and two nurse practitioners. A research team has also been established with a Research Manager and a Statistician/database manager. The trauma division has been successful in competing for extramural funds for both basic science and clinical research projects.
