Dear Participants,

The BRAZILIAN TRAUMA LEAGUES CONGRESS (CoLT) was created in 1999 as an initiative of the Trauma Leagues to promote a social-scientific event of union between the existing Trauma Leagues in our country.

It was supported by the guiding teacher of the Trauma League of Unicamp and former president of SBAIT, Dr. Mario Mantovani.

Thus, annual events were carried out which made it possible to congregate the various regions of the country in its following editions: Campinas (SP), São Paulo (SP), Ribeirão Preto (SP), Porto Alegre (RS), Sorocaba (SP), São Luis (MA), Fortaleza (CE), Belém (PA), Vitória (ES), Rio de Janeiro (RJ), Ilhéus (BA), Manaus (AM), Belo Horizonte (MG) e Maceió (AL).

In 19th edition, CoLT returns to the city of origin, Campinas (SP), and with great joy we will receive students and professionals who work in Trauma.

This edition is even more special for being part of UNICAMP’s Trauma League 25 years celebration, the oldest trauma league in the country.

We are proud to receive international students as well, making a true “trauma without borders” event.
