    The duration of the course is approximately 16 hours – including breaks and theoretical-practical exams. The course is divided into 8 hours of frontal lessons and 8 hours of practical stations.


    The ITLS course is structured in different modules: from the evaluation of the dynamics of the trauma, fundamental to understand the injury mechanism, to the diagnostic process, to then arrive at the district traumas: thoracic, abdominal, cranial, limbs.
