Team University of Michigan and AIIMS on Trauma Care

The University of Michigan (U-M) pooled with All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) to collaborate on trauma care research and to cultivate exchange of medical personnel and ideas.

The alliance with AIIMS marks the first such partnership between academic medical programs in the U.S. and India on trauma care, a surgeon Krishnan Raghavendran said.

He was a part of the U-M delegation that travelled to New Delhi in February 2011 to discuss the new venture.

"It's a monumental problem and we're eager to help AIIMS and the government of India to develop a network of more than 140 trauma centers around the country. U-M is verified as a Level 1 Pediatric and Adult Trauma Center and a Burn Center by the American College of Surgeons. We're bringing a lot of experience and proven protocols to the table, along with a very robust program of basic and clinical science research," Raghavendran said.

The alliance helps fulfill U-M's mission to facilitate health research, education and collaboration with global partners for the benefit of communities worldwide.

India's medical infrastructure has failed to keep pace with its increasingly crowded highways and byways with motor vehicle crashes killing over 150,000 people every year.
