This year’s William A. L. Mitchell Endowed Lectureship in Traumatology and Surgical Care will feature Dr. Timothy C. Fabian, Wilson Alumni Professor and Chair of Surgery at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis.
The lecture, “Blunt Aortic Injury,” will take place March 27, 2014, at 4 p.m. at the Renaissance Mobile Riverview Plaza Hotel in Mobile, Ala. A welcome reception will follow the lecture.
The lecture, which is held in conjunction with the 4th annual Greater Gulf Coast Trauma and Acute Care Surgery Symposium, is free and open to the public.
Dr. Fabian earned his medical degree from Loyola University of Chicago and conducted surgical residency training at Ohio State University. He then went to Emory University School of Medicine and completed a fellowship in trauma/critical care at Grady Memorial Hospital. After serving on the faculty at Emory, he moved on to the University of Tennessee in Memphis where he began an academic career in trauma.
Dr. Fabian helped organize and develop one of the largest volume trauma centers in the United States -- The Presley Memorial Trauma Center at Memphis. His academic interests have been in both clinical and laboratory research dealing with shock and organ injury management.
The lecture is presented annually in memory of William A. L. Mitchell, who died in 2005 from severe traumatic injuries sustained in a car crash. In appreciation for the care he received at the USA Trauma Center, his family established the endowed lecture series to memorialize their son and brother and to improve trauma patient care in our region through education. He was a senior at UMS-Wright Preparatory School at the time of his death.
The USA Trauma Center is this region’s only Level I Trauma Center, serving as a community resource for citizens throughout the central Gulf Coast region. The center provides the highest level of care for critically ill and/or injured patients.
