This part of the program focuses on small group teaching, high fidelity simulation, skills, team work, debriefing, and testing specific to AHA fundamentals.
The Combo Course is located at the Center for Simulation and Research on the Oak Campus.
Registration is open to physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, paramedics, and other healthcare providers whose occupation directs or participates in the management of medical emergencies.
We offer PALS and ACLS using a hybrid learning model. The majority of the learning is a self-directed online module. The skills portion will build on core concepts based on the AHA fundamentals, followed by skills testing at the Center for Simulation and Research on the Oak Campus.
