Trauma Evaluation and Management

Trauma Evaluation and Management (TEAM) is an introductory course for medical students in the evaluation and management of trauma. The program includes a three-segment, initial-assessment video demonstration; clinical trauma case scenarios for small group discussion; and skills sessions. The content can be easily adapted to a medical school’s curriculum. The program’s core content is adapted from the Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) course*.

The TEAM program provides a standardized introductory course in the evaluation and management of trauma for medical students and multidisciplinary team members. The ATLS Committee strongly encourages the participation of ATLS instructors because they have the knowledge of the philosophy, intent, and content of the program.
