    Abstract

    More than 18,000 injured soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan have been cared for at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany. The Senior Visiting Surgeons Program is bringing leaders of civilian trauma care to Landstuhl to participate in the care of injured soldiers and to serve as mentors and advisors to those in the military care system. This report provides a view of the collaborative efforts to optimize trauma care for critically injured soldiers.
