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.
