Advanced Trauma Operative Management (ATOM®) 

About the Course

Dr. Lenworth Jacobs, of the University of Connecticut School of Medicine and Hartford Hospital Trauma
Program developed the Advanced Trauma Operative Managementâ Course. It was established in 1998 out of a demonstrated need for the interactive exchange of knowledge regarding operative procedures in the management of trauma. The course consists of six 30-minute lectures followed by a 3-hour lab session where the student will manage fourteen different injuries. The lab session is unique in that there is a 1:1 student to instructor ratio. At the conclusion of the lab, the students must complete post-course evaluations and surveys via the Internet.


The student will explain and describe the proper operative tecnique for dealing with trauma injury.

The student must identify traumatic injuries and develop a management plan in order to surgically repair the injuries.

At the completion of this course the student will be able to demonstrate the following:
  1. Increased self-efficacy in the management of traumatic injuries
  2. Increased knowledge in the management of penetrating injuries
  3. Ability to successfully and safely perform all operative procedures presented in the course
Target Audience
