The Cook County Trauma & Burn Unit welcomes residents from multiple disciplines throughout the Chicagoland area and from around the world to rotate through the Level 1 Unit.

We partner with Surgical and Emergency Medicine Residency Programs at Rush University, University of Chicago, University of South Dakota, Midwestern University, Cook County Hospital, Northwestern University, Resurrection Medical Center, and Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago to provide a unique training experience in trauma medical care.

For more information about the service or rotating as an elective, contact our Program Coordinator.
