Third Wednesday of every other month from 12:00-1:00 PM MST

The University of Utah Health's Burn Center brings education and resources to community providers covering burn and soft tissue injuries.

Community providers can get educational resources for free from an interdisciplinary team of burn and soft tissue injury professionals from the University of Utah Health's Burn Center.

Why Should Providers Participate in the Burn & Soft Tissue Injury Education Series?

In many communities and health care facilities, only a limited number of providers are able to gain regular education and experience in the areas of burn and soft tissue injuries.

The burn and soft tissue injury series aims to expand the knowledge of hands-on expertise gathered at a regional Burn Center to local community providers who want to gain a deeper insight of tertiary burns and soft-tissue injuries.

These sessions are open to any level provider who may benefit from such education. Sessions also offer Category 1 CME for those who are eligible to claim credit.


How Do I Access Burn Education Resources?

The education series is streamed live, and resources are housed on a secure, HIPAA-compliant website. To access these resources, you will need to request an account which takes less than 60 seconds to gain access.

Please visit the Crisis Standards of Care website portal to register.
