Advanced Medical Life Support (AMLS) remains the gold standard of education for emergency medical assessment and treatment. AMLS emphasizes the use of the AMLS Assessment Pathway, a systematic tool for assessing and managing common medical conditions with urgent accuracy. 


In AMLS, students learn to recognize and manage common medical crises through realistic case-based scenarios that challenge students to apply their knowledge to highly critical patients. The course emphasizes the use of scene size-up, first impression, history, interactive group discussion on differential diagnosis and potential treatment strategies, and physical exam to systematically rule out and consider possibilities and probabilities in treating patients' medical crises.  Successful students in this course are those who have actual patient care experience. 


This two-day course combines lecture with skill scenario stations to allow students the opportunity to apply the material they learn from lecture. The course is approved for 16 hours of CAPCE continuing education.
