Certifications

CERTIFICATIONS – DUE May 29, 2020

(THIS IS A PRE-EMPLOYMENT REQUIREMENT)

All incoming house staff are required to take an American Heart Association (AHA) approved ACLS course at their own expense and maintain certification throughout their training. All Pediatric residents must be PALS & NRP certified.  Programs that require additional life support certification(s) will directly notify their house staff.

In-person/Online courses are acceptable, however we will only accept certifications from authorized American Heart Association training centers, so please be careful when selecting your course.  You need to specifically ask if the card issued upon completion will have an official AHA logo on it (see samples below).  We will not accept certification cards that do not have an AHA logo

AHA approved online courses are available for purchase at www.onlineaha.org.  This option requires a separate skills session with an American Heart Association instructor and has an additional cost.

You must upload unexpired copies of your certification card(s) to MedHub by the May 29 deadline.   Current certifications must be valid through 8/31/20 or you’ll need to be recertified.  Non-receipt of these certifications will delay your start date!
