ATLS Courses in India

Advanced Trauma Life Support® (ATLS®) Courses in India

India's first official ATLS® courses will be conducted at Jai Prakash Narayan Apex Trauma Centre, AIIMS , New Delhi.
Details are available at this website ATLS is an initiative of the American College of Surgeons (
This course teaches a systematic, concise and standardized approach towards dealing with a trauma patient.
All emergency physicians & trauma surgeons are expected to apply the ATLS concept during the management of every trauma patient.

ATLS based trauma programs are not a new thing for emergency medicine in our country.
Several advanced trauma management programs have been training candidates regularly for more than a decade now.
EMTC (Early Management of Trauma Course, Christian Medical College, Vellore)
NTMC (National Trauma Management Course, Academy of Traumatology, Gujarat)

Apart from these, ITLS (International Trauma Life Support) courses which train prehospital care
personnel in trauma management have also been around since several years now at
Symbiosis Institute of Health Sciences, Pune,
Indian Institute of Emergency Medical Services, Kottayam and
Ramaiah Medical College, Bangalore

ITLS Access which trains candidates on extrication techniques and removal of victims from vehicles & wreakage is also conducted at Symbiosis, Pune

See ITLS Course Locations in India on the ITLS website

The cost of the official ATLS course at Rs:20000/- per candidate (in contrast to others which are at 2000/- per candidate) will seriously limit
the accessibilty of this critical training to the doctors who need it the most.
How this course makes a difference to the trauma management in the country remains to be seen.



Greetings from - The first and only web portal for emergency medicine in India.
We started in May 2006 and are continuing on our quest to provide all EM related information.

As we are all taking the specialty of emergency medicine into its new rapid phase of expansion, the
demand by newcomers for authentic information is at its peak. now recieves more than 12000 visitors per month! Our mailbox is now recieving
about a 100 enquiries a month about all aspects of EM. We get enquiries for locations of training
programs, departments, Heads, EM physicians, mentors, examinations, overseas observerships,
international visitors and workshops. We also are now giving career advice to fresh graduates regularly
and directing them to relevant institutes based on their preferences.

In an effort to standardise the information we have about emergency departments in India, we have created
an online form which needs to be submitted, in order to be listed on our website. This information will be
displayed and used to guide students, residents, observers and potential training candidates to your dept.

The list of emergency departments in India can be reached by clicking on the link at the top left corner of this page.

We will process your submitted information and update our site pages accordingly.
Please include any information specific to your dept that you want us to know.

We hope that this effort will ensure the availability of authentic information to all our visitors.

To submit information, request for an emergency department survey form by sending us an email at
