Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) is a two-day educational program designed for physicians who are primarily responsible for managing the critically injured patient. Initial assessment and management to specific injuries are presented through lecture and skill-related stations. The participant observes and practices life-saving skills necessary in the initial management and stabilization of the trauma victim. This certification is valid for four years and successful completion of the ATLS course includes passing a multiple-choice examination and demonstrating critical steps of the skill stations.
