Need to Schedule a CPR Course?

If you are a current, or incoming, medical student, resident or fellow you are eligible to complete your mandatory certification requirements utilizing IU Health's Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC) Program at no cost.  Seating is limited and course scheduling is first come first serve.  Calendars are typically published approximately 6 weeks prior to start of new month. 


Advanced certification (i.e., ACLS and PALS) courses fill up quickly and attendees are encouraged to register as soon as possible.  If you need a course and are unable to enroll at IU Health you may also locate local training facilities through the American Heart Assocation (AHA) website and search for training centers:  http://www.heart.org/HEARTORG/
