Dr. Almogy's clinical and research experience in trauma care started in 2001 while he was a second year surgical resident at the Hadassah Medical Center and was first exposed to trauma surgery. Since then trauma surgery has become a major topic of his investigations and one of his chief subspecialties.
Based on the unfortunate Israeli experiences, he was involved in the first introduction of the civilian protocol for the management of mass casualty incidents (MCI's) and showed a high success rate in saving life by fully utilizing the limited resources available in civilian hospitals. The importance of these studies has been demonstrated in real life. He was invited as an expert speaker and guest lecturer to a number of teaching courses and conferences around the world.
