    I've been digging around for GS programs that do not have trauma centers. So far, I've only come across one: St. Joe's, in Denver. They ship residents to Denver General for 4 months in the 4th year for their trauma experience.

    Anybody know of any others?

    There are many,many programs not associated with level I trauma centers including some university programs (ie. Northwestern)

    All programs probably take some low level trauma, but as far as those that have minimal trauma as evidenced by outside requirements, I don't recall them off hand, but they generally rotate to either Jacksonville, FL, Shock Trauma (U-MD), or DG (Denver General). So you might just try contacting them and finding out.

    Hope this helps.
