Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS)

The Level I Trauma Center at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (RWJUH) is proud to offer the Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS®) classes for continuing medical education for physicians.

The course provides a systematic, concise training for the early care of trauma patients. Participants will receive instruction for a safe, reliable method for immediate management of the injured patient and the basic knowledge necessary to:

  • Access the patient’s condition rapidly and accurately.
  • Resuscitate and stabilize the patient according to priority.
  • Determine if the patient’s needs exceed a facility’s capacity.
  • Arrange appropriately for the patient’s inter-hospital transfer (who, what, when, and how).
  • Assure that optimum care is provided and that the level of care does not deteriorate at any point during the evaluation, resuscitation, or transfer process.
