2021 Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS)

ATLS® is a program that was developed by the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma with the aim to improve care provided to injured patients.  This course approaches trauma care in an organized and systematic manner.  Focus is given to care provided during the “first hour”.  Initial assessment and primary management of the patient is emphasized, starting at the time of injury and continuing through initial assessment, intervention, reevaluation, stabilization and transfer to a trauma center for definitive care.

This is a 2 day course comprised of didactic and skills stations. You must attend both days to receive credit for the course.
