TRAUMA strikes down its many victims swiftly and indiscriminately. In that first critical hour after someone has been severely injured, the physician must act with speed, knowledge, and skill.

The American College of Surgeons (ACS) Committee on Trauma developed the current ATLS  Program in accordance with the College’s long-standing dedication to improvement of care for the surgical patient. The program is designed for physicians who do not treat victims of major trauma regularly and who may not have immediate access to sophisticated emergency care facilities. Physicians treating trauma patients in emergency or surgical departments also benefit from the course training. The program emphasizes the first hour of initial assessment and primary management of the injured patient, starting at the point in time of injury and continuing through initial assessment, life-saving intervention, re-evaluation, stabilization, and when needed, transfer to a facility in which the patient can receive specialized care, EG, a trauma center.

Based on well-established principles and objectives of trauma management, the course is intended to provide physicians with one acceptable method for safe, immediate management and the basic knowledge necessary to:

  • Assess the patient’s condition rapidly and accurately.

  • Resuscitate and stabilize the patient on a priority basis.

  • Determine if the patient’s needs, will likely exceed a facility’s capabilities.

  • Arrange for the patient’s inter-hospital transfer.

  • Assure that optimum care is provided each step of the way.


The two-day student course consists of pre- and post-course tests, core content lectures, case presentations, discussions, and development of life-saving manipulative skills, practical laboratory experience, and a final performance proficiency evaluation. Upon completion of the course, physicians should feel confident in implementing the trauma skills taught in this course.
