Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) COVID-19: Trauma Education Resources

The American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma has made available, the following education videos from the Advanced Trauma Life Support course. The videos are for education purposes and to utilize for just in time training for physicians, surgeons and other providers who may be asked to help cover trauma call. Please use them as a resource and do not hesitate to contact the Critical Care and Trauma Institute with any questions or requests at this time. Please email Jennifer Sova, Education and Training Coordinator at Jennifer.sova.m@wvumedicine.org for questions or requests.

During the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, we understand that everyone is in need of additional resources and looking for alternate ways to address their individual needs. In an effort to develop an equitable solution for all of our ATLS Partners and health care professionals that care for injured patients, we have made the following Basic Trauma Care “Just in Time” education materials available free of charge.
