Hybrid mATLS® 10th Edition course

The American College of Surgeons (ACS) are currently developing its renowned ATLS® course. As the sole provider of ATLS® in the UK and soon to launch its 10th edition, The Royal College of Surgeons has been selected to pilot a new hybrid version of the course. Whilst continuing to teach an effective and systematic approach to the management of trauma patients, the hybrid course offers online modules and a shorter face-to-face element.

The format of this hybrid course includes a state-of-the-art and interactive eLearning tool which will enhance your learning experience and reduce the number of days attending the practical sessions from three to two.

The pilot course can also provide candidates with the exciting opportunity to participate in the 10th edition course before its launch in the UK later this year. By taking part, candidates have the opportunity to help shape advanced life support education and the future of this highly popular course.
