the American College of Surgeons, is considered equivalent to
EMST. Further information can be found on the ATLS
Generally, applicants will wait approximately 18 months to
be offered a course place. Throughout the year, some course places
may become vacanct and applicants on the waiting list (in
accordance with their original date of application and
post-graduate year 2+) will be contacted by the Skills Training
Office and offered these course places.
