“I PASSED!” Those two words have been some of my favorite messages from my fellow physicians and medical personnel in 22 countries who took the original ULTIMATE ATLS PREP COURSE in preparation for the Advanced Trauma Life Support [ATLS] certifying or recertifying exam.


[1] 130+ Practice Questions & Answers

Every chapter has a question. Every few chapters has a quiz. Then there’s the Post Test. And Finally there is of course the ULTIMATE ATLS 10 PREP PRACTICE TEST. All told more than 130 questions with explanations.

[2] Chapter Notes & Key Points

I walk through all 13 chapters pulling out the key points of the ATLS 10th Edition protocol. Things have changed since the last time you certified. And if this is your first, you will get the benefit starting with the current ATLS guidelines.

[3] Mnemonics

[MIST – AMPLE – DOPE – LEMON – SOAP ME and more]

[4] Curated Skills

Playlist with comments on the videos you find on YouTube so you have some guidance. Not all videos demonstrate the skill properly and of course some are better than others. Saves a lot of time.

[5] Practical Guidance

“The Good”, “The Bad”, and “The Ugly” are designed to help you navigate this part of the exam by simulating how to work through each “dynamic question”. Huge help in gaining exposure before you get to exam day.

[6] CME: Peer reviewed and approved you get the benefit if you choose to get 5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits for taking this prep course! You can read the notice from our partner CME Outfitters

Do you need to certify or recertify for ATLS, Advanced Trauma Life Support, 10th edition protocol? Don’t want go in blind to the written and practical exam?

If you are a Hospitalist, PA, Family Practice doc moonlighting, Nurse Practitioner, Resident, or dare I say even a Surgeon or Emergency Medicine doc 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.

We all know we learn differently, shouldn’t we have more than the book 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’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 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.)
