The American College of Surgeons (ACS) has been a leader in establishing and maintaining the high quality of guidelines for the care of injured patients through their Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) program.

The ATLS Student Course is a systematic and concise approach to the early care of trauma patients assessing and managing multiply injured patients. The principles of patient care in this course may also be beneficial to people engaged in the care of patients with non-trauma – related diseases.

When we took this course, we noticed that to be able to obtain the certificate, an exam of the knowledge acquired was mandatory. However, the exam was difficult, and more multiple-choice questions (MCQ) were necessary for success in the final exam. These questions should be similar to the exam and well explained according to the ATLS course manual. And this is what we have done with atlsmcq.

At, we do not pretend to replicate this course but to facilitate the learning through MCQ. Within contents you will find comprehensive questions similar to the final exam in the ATLS course explained and documented with up to date references.

Our aim at is to make sure that you pass the exam. We leave the learning to the course and skills teaching to the fantastic ATLS providers.
