WMed is an AHA Training Center that offers the American Heart Association HeartCode (blending learning) approach to Basic Life Support (BLS), Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) and Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) renewal courses. HeartCode is a web-based, self-paced instructional program that uses eSimulation technology to allow you to assess and treat patients in virtual healthcare settings. Course completion consists of 3 parts: a computer-based cognitive portion (Part 1), a skills practice portion (Part 2), and the skills testing portion (Part 3). Parts 2 and 3 will be completed with WMed faculty and AHA instructors overseeing your activities in the Simulation Center.
Courses are offered with scheduling precedence provided to residents, staff and faculty. Open seats are provided to others of interest as available. Courses are held at the Simulation Center at the W.E. Upjohn M.D. Campus and/or the WMed Simulation Center at Ascension Borgess Hospital (5th Floor West).
