• This article reviews the current status of trauma care education and its relationship to critical care education. The critical linkage of both of these endeavors with urban hospitals oriented to indigent care is stressed. Within the specialty of surgery, the recent progress toward resolution of conflicts that have threatened trauma and critical care education programs is reviewed. The partnership between the trauma programs of urban hospitals will be strengthened by this resolution.
