ALSO Provider Course

ALSO Provider Course – May 11, 2018

Radisson Hotel and Conference Center, Coralville, IA

This Advanced Life Support in Obstetrics (ALSO) Provider Course is sponsored by OSCEP on behalf of the UI-Affiliated Family Medicine Residency Programs.

Faculty from each of the participating Iowa residency programs volunteer their time to teach the course.

The course is primarily for residents and faculty of the residency programs. If spaces are available, non-residency physicians or nurses may attend (registration fee will apply).

Upon successful completion of this course, learners will be awarded ALSO provider status for the period of two years.


This is a one day course, but does require the successful completion of an online component prior to attending.

Online Course Component

Participants must successfully complete required online course elements at their own pace prior to attending the one day live portion of the course. The online component must be completed by May 1, 2018.

The live portion of the course then provides multiple hands-on opportunities for learners to practice their skills and apply what they have learned.

Online access details will be provided upon registration for the course.

Course Material

Participants may order an optional course manual to assist in preparing for the online and live components, as well as to use as a reference resource for the future. This is available in printed or electronic formats.
