Trauma Research Program (TRP) was established in July of 2016 with funding from King Abdullah International Medical Research Center (KAIMRC) through Population Health Research Section (PHRS). It consists of a network of passionate professionals dedicated to trauma research, education, treatment and prevention, who work together to elevate the quality of trauma research carried out in KSA through publications, conference papers and presentations. In addition, we aim to implement an injury prevention program as part of medical care provided to patients treated in the National Guard hospitals.
