It remains one of the busiest trauma centers in New York City with approximately 2000 admissions per year via our Emergency Department. As a Level 1 trauma center, Jacobi is equipped and resourced to handle all types of injury which may impact multiple body organ systems. Therefore, the Jacobi PA in trauma surgery will need to exercise flexibility and adaptability to manage a broad range of medical and surgical conditions under the supervision of an attending trauma surgeon. Because the spectrum of trauma surgery can encompass many organ systems, the Jacobi trauma surgery PA will become knowledgeable about a wide range of pathophysiology as well as know how to prioritize and manage injuries sustained. Trauma remains the leading cause of death in the first four decades of life and is surpassed only by cancer and atherosclerosis as a major cause of death in all age groups.
