In brief: Trauma Surgeon
Emergency medicine physicians do much of the initial diagnostic work on the majority of trauma in this country.
In organized trauma systems, severely injured patients are taken to trauma centers where a trauma surgeon directed team, including an emergency medicine colleague, participate in the management.

I agree. If a patient is admitted to the hospital though, they are often admitted to a trauma surgeon and many other physicians assist them in caring for these patients. They can be quite complex to care for.
