Lansing MI - A delegation of trauma Physicians and government officials from South Korea will visit Sparrow as part of a tour of Level 1 trauma centers across the U.S. By some estimates, victims of more than 30 percent of fatal trauma injuries in South Korea last year could have survived with proper treatment.
South Korea has been working to improve its trauma care and turned to MSU’s Visiting International Professional Program (VIPP), which delivers executive education and professional development training to international visitors, and arranged the U.S. tour.
