Finished teaching an ATLS course. ATLS is a fun course to teach, as it is one of the few courses where the students can perform procedures (chest tubes, DPL, ect..) on living models. This site has a good description of the genesis of ATLS. ATLS is not designed for trauma surgeons per se, but residents take it because it provides a structured framework for the evaluation and resuscitation of the trauma patient.
The Trauma.org site also has inital assesment scenarios (under moulage) similar to those used to test ATLS students. Kinda neat.
