EMST is a 2.5 day, highly interactive course that teaches the
management of trauma victims in the first hour or two following
injury - emphasising a systematic clinical approach. It has been
tailored from the Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS®) course of
the American College of Surgeons and recognised as the
international equivalent. The course is designed for all doctors
who are involved in the early treatment of serious injuries in
urban or rural areas, whether or not sophisticated emergency
facilities are available. This course is a requirement of all
surgical training programs in Australia and New Zealand.
Entry criteria: One year after date of first medical
registration at the time of enrolment.
