If you are one of the "lucky ones" that need to take the ATLS Certification or Recertification exam then the ULTIMATE ATLS Prep course is for you.  

Whether you’re a Surgeon, Emergency Medicine Physician, Physician Assistant, Nurse Practitioner, Resident, or other Medical Professional working in a facility that requires certification in Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS), this course will help prepare you to take the ATLS Certification or Recertification exam with confidence.  

As a board certified surgeon I’ve taken and passed the ATLS Certification a number of times.  When I noticed that not everyone passed the last time I took the exam and, I considered the amount of time, money, and effort spent,  I decided to put the ULTIMATE ATLS Prep together.  I simply believe we should have more tools to help us prepare for the written and the practical portions of the ATLS certification test - especially if this is your first time going through the process.

I specifically designed this study guide to be comprehensive, flexible, and effective.  To achieve these goals and give you the most useful tool in your certification prep, the ULTIMATE ATLS Prep course is built on four pillars:


(1) Chapter by Chapter Notes

  • In each video lecture I give you my notes to all 13 Chapters - all of the key points and subject matter areas that I think will help you on the written and practical.  It’s a fairly detailed review of ATLS that you can go over as many times as you like - long before the actual exam date. 

  • Now being able to review ATLS whenever, wherever, and as many times as you want to is I believe, a huge advantage over going in cold to the one or two day review before the test. (Nothing against the one or two day review - now those lectures will really be pre-test reviews.)


(2) 100+ Practice Questions and Quiz Questions

  • I created (along with my team) over 100 practice test and quiz questions with answers. This pillar was built to help you develop and strengthen your ability to think through the written exam questions and get to the correct answer. (A better value than going in blind or worse still, combing the internet for test questions!)


(3) Curated ATLS SKills Videos

  • I reviewed and narrowed down a host of videos demonstrating ATLS Skills necessary for ATLS certification. I also include my comments and points to remember as you view these videos.  No more wasting time clicking and hoping to stumble upon a good video.


(4) Practical Guidance

  • Because the Practical portion of the certification exam is basically one big question and many people are not experienced with this format, I give you some  guidance, from experience, throughout this prep course on how to handle working your way through the trauma scenario.



Disclaimers:

     I’m not an official or invited instructor from the American College of Surgeons and this prep course is in no way endorsed, linked, sanctioned, funded, or affiliated in anyway with the American College of Surgeons or the ATLS Certification or Recertification courses.  

     I’m not going to grant you any CME’s because I can’t grant you any CME’s.  Which means, to be absolutely 100% clear - you don’t get any CME’s because you took this prep course.  You will get your CME’s from the American College of Surgeons when you take and pass the ATLS Certification course.  

     I’m not going to give you any answers from the ATLS Certification exam.*(As I mentioned above, we developed our own practice questions with answers for you.)

     I'm not going to guarantee you pass the test because you have to study, prepare, and take the test for yourself. (I thought this was obvious but Legal actually made me write this -seriously.)

     Finally, I’m not going to waste your time or money. There’s already a lot of time and money on the line anyway when you sign up to take the ATLS Certification exam.(To this end, check out the free previews above.)
