2-day Student Provider Course = 17 CME credits
The Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) course teaches
established standards of trauma care and practical life-saving skills. The course is designed for the physician who
does not treat victims of major trauma regularly, and does not have immediate
access to sophisticated emergency care facilities.
Physicians treating trauma patients in emergency or surgical
departments also benefit from this course training. This is a two-day course conducted with the
use of lecture presentation, coupled with laboratory work and unique skill
stations. At each skill station, faculty
first demonstrates specific techniques, and then participants practice these
skills in simulated emergency situations.
Upon successful completion of the ATLS course, the student
physician will receive a card bearing an expiration date and signatures of the
ACS state trauma committee chairman, and the local course instructor, attesting
to successful completion of the ATLS course.
