ATLS: For doctors who infrequently treat trauma, the ATLS course provides an easy-to-remember method for evaluating and treating the victim of a traumatic event. For doctors who treat traumatic disease on a frequent basis, the ATLS course provides a scaffold for evaluation, treatment, education, and quality assurance. In short, ATLS is a measurable, reproducible, and comprehensive system of trauma care. *

Each student course is limited to 24 providers.

ATLS Refresher Course: Erlanger Trauma Services offers an ATLS Refresher Course in conjunction with some two-day ATLS studentcourses. This course provides doctors with current ATLS certification the ability to maintain their current status. Erlanger Trauma Services highly encourages physicians who take the ATLS Refresher Course to be experienced in the frequent provision of trauma care as class content includes review of Core Changes in ATLS Content, with Skills Stations & Scenario Review only, prior to testing. Refresher Course students are expected to read the ATLS Manual prior to the class and be prepared to engage and ask questions of instructors.

Each Refresher Course is limited to 16 providers.
