Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) Courses for College of Medicine Students

It is a requirement of the College that you be CPR certified during your first year in medical school. If you are currently certified, proof of the certification needs to be given to the Office of Medical Education (910 Madison Ave., Suite 1002) by the end of March of your first year.

For those not certified, classes will be presented throughout the academic year by upper-class students through the Medical Student Executive Council (MSEC). The classes and all necessary resources are paid for by the College. MSEC will furnish a list of those students who completed their course to the Office of Medical Education. All first year medical students MUST be CPR certified by the end of March of their first year.

Classes will be recertified during 3rd year Preparation to Clerkship week. This will provide you with the opportunity to update your BCLS certification, thus enabling you to take ACLS in your residency.
