It is mandatory that all PGY1s complete an ACLS course prior to commencing training. Dalhousie does not provide nor offer this course to incoming trainees; therefore, you must make arrangements to complete one before your arrival as it may be very difficult to find an available course. ACLS is a requirement for hospital credentialing. You may be required to participate in running arrest codes and not having ACLS could inhibit your ability to join assigned rotations.
