To promote education and research in the trauma registry field
To meet this goal, the AOTR strives to present appropriate and accurate educational offerings to the membership several times a year. The AOTR also supports local conferences with funding, attendance and physical support. Participation by the members of the AOTR is encouraged on a national level in the American College of Surgeons TQIP Conferences and the ESO training. As part of Ohio’s legislation, members participate in the Ohio Trauma Committee and the Ohio Trauma Registry Advisory Workgroup (TRAW).
AOTR has an Education Committee. All members are welcome to participate on the Committee and bring their education ideas to the group. Continuing education credits are offered for appropriate presentations and for members in good standing.

Education is promoted as a valuable asset for current and future registrars in the state of Ohio. One of the goals of the Education Committee is to bring timely information to the members to allow them to be leaders, first in their institutions, then on a state and national level
