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 www.atls.in ATLS is an initiative of the American College of Surgeons (www.facs.org)
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) www.emtcvellore.net
NTMC (National Trauma Management Course, Academy of Traumatology, Gujarat) www.indiatrauma.org

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.
