About ATLS

The Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) Program, designed by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Committee on Trauma (COT), aims to improve the care of trauma patients. The 2-day course includes didactic lectures, an animal practice session and real-time trauma simulation sessions. Doctors will be taught a systematic, concise method of establishing assessment and management priorities in the care of the trauma patients.

The ATLS Program aims to provide the participant with a safe, reliable method to assess the patient's condition rapidly and accurately, resuscitate and stabilize them according to priority, determine if there's a need to transfer the patient to another facility, arrange for inter-hospital transfer and ensure that optimal care is provided.

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