Bring a team and showcase your patient care skills at this conference favorite event!

ITLS is accepting applications for teams to compete in the annual Trauma Competition at the International Trauma Conference, November 3-5 in Quebec City. Teams from around the world compete using the ITLS assessment to triage and treat trauma patients in simulated scenarios. From helicopter crashes to cougar attacks, scenarios are always inventive, complex, and dramatic.

All competitors must be available from 7:00am to 4:00pm Saturday, November 4. All teams will complete in 3 scenarios. The team with the highest cumulative score will be the winner.

Teams will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. All team members must be registered for the full conference (special Competition Team rates available). The team captain is required to be a current ITLS-certified provider or instructor.
