Training in trauma forms a fundamental component of general surgical training in Australia. It faces a number of challenges, including the limitations of working hours and increasing use of non-operative management techniques. Adjustment of rosters to encompass a "swing shift" (12pm-midnight) is one proposed solution to maximise exposure of junior surgical doctors to trauma. This proposal prompted a review of the timing of major trauma presentations and interventions at a Level 1 trauma centre.
