ATLS EXTENSION INFO

 At the beginning of the pandemic, we made the decision to extend ATLS Provider statuses in the following way:

Providers expiring between 7/1/2019 and 12/31/2019 (and in their grace periods at the onset of the pandemic): Extended to 12/31/2020. Providers expiring in 2020: Extended by 1 calendar year from their original expiration date.

At this time, we are facing another surge in infections that will further restrict ATLS Courses in 2021. For that reason, we have made the decision to grant additional extensions based on the following criteria:

 

Providers expiring between 12/31/2020 and 12/31/2021 are eligible for a 1-year extension upon completion of a mandatory Content Review.

If you have been fortunate enough to register for an upcoming ATLS course and can reasonably, safely attend, we encourage you to keep your registration. Even as course volume begins to increase, ATLS course availability will be limited due to the large backlog of Providers who need to renew. Participation in a course will extend your status for another 4 years; the Content Review only offers a 1-year extension in the event you cannot locate or safely attend an available course.
 
The Content Review consists of 14 scenario-based questions. You will answer the question, and immediately receive feedback on whether the answer you chose was correct. There will be a discussion for you to read that further explains the concepts presented. You will have unlimited attempts to achieve a 100% score on the Content Review.
 
This requirement is to ensure ACS supports your continued education and training during this pandemic, while access to ATLS courses may be limited. It also allows us to emphasize the changes made to the program in the 10th Edition.
 
You must complete the Content Review to qualify for the 1-year extension. We have enrolled you into an online course where you will complete the Content Review and gain access to additional resources. Please carefully note the details and instructions below:
 
Name of online course: ATLS 10th Edition Provider – COVID Extension
Course URL: https://learning.facs.org            
Email address associated with your ACS account 

Note: If the email address and username listed above are already associated with an ACS account (member account or otherwise), you may log in to the course using your existing password. If this is the first time you are logging into an ACS account, you will need to use the Forgot Password feature, enter the email address we have on file for you, and set a password before returning to the course page to log in. If you need to update the email address on file in order to log in, please contact atls@facs.org.
 
Upon successful completion of the course, you will immediately receive a Certificate of Completion. You can expect to receive your official Certificate of Extension within 5-10 business days via email.
 
Any questions regarding this process may be directed to atls@facs.org.
 
Kind regards,

On behalf of  Dr. Kim Joseph, MD, FACS, Chairwomen ATLS Subcommittee
