ATLS Hybrid Course at Sunnybrook

Hybrid Course is comprised of 13 online modules designed to replace the interactive discussion component of the traditional ATLS course so that learners may complete it at their own pace. Learners are expected to complete these modules over a six week period (each module is expected to take approximately one hour to complete) and they must be completed one week prior to your course date.
