Boston Trauma Institute
Boston Medical Center (BMC) sees the highest percentage of penetrating trauma cases in the city. Faculty and staff are experts in trauma treatment, renowned for their culturally responsive and innovative approaches to care delivery and in meeting the unique needs of individuals who have experienced trauma. The recently launched Boston Trauma Institute (BTI) was established to formalize BMC’s leadership in this area, with a goal of innovating, evaluating, and disseminating new models of care and support services for trauma survivors in Boston and beyond.
Boston Medical Center is already home to a number of nationally recognized, evidence-based programs specifically designed to meet the medical, social, behavioral, and emotional needs of those affected by violence. Under the direction of Peter Burke, MD, Professor of Surgery at the Boston University Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine and former chief of Acute Care and Trauma Surgery, BTI expands the commitment of the institution to treat the whole patient, providing support well beyond the operating room and bedside.
A major focus of the BTI is translational research. For further information on our past and current research efforts, please click here.
