About ATLS Course

Advanced Trauma Life Support® (ATLS®), is a continuing medical education program designed  to teach a standardardized, concise approach to the care of the trauma patient in the "golden hour" - the period of time following traumatic injury during which there is the highest likelihood of death.

mATLS®—the newest addition to the ATLS program—is comprised of 13 online modules designed to replace the interactive discussion component of the traditional ATLS course so that learners may complete it at their own pace (2 days of protected time is recommended). After completion of these modules, learners will proceed to their registered course sites to complete the hands-on skills portion of the course following a prescribed 1-day skills practicum schedule.

There are 3 course centres in Singapore that conduct the ATLS Program, namely Singapore Armed Forces, Singapore General Hospital and Tan Tock Seng Hospital.

  • Demonstrate concepts and principles of primary and secondary patient assessment

  • Participate in a simulated clinical and surgical skills practicum where they will demonstrate skills that are often required in the initial assessment and treatment of patient with multiple injuries
