Department of Anesthesiology

Week of August 14th, 2017

The Department of Anesthesiology’s weekly e-newsletter will be distributed on Friday of each week promoting department activities for the upcoming week. To submit a news item, please contact Jill Dellibovi at Jill.Dellibovi@osumc.edu by Thursday at 12:00 pm

ACLS Training
ACLS training classes will no longer be offered through the department.
Those who took the May ACLS class already with Eric or Kate will get their certification renewed
Going forward there are two options to receive ACLS training: sign up for a class for no cost or do the online AHA class for the $135 fee and they can submit to be reimbursed from their CME funds as part of that they will then have 60 days to go over to the ED&R office to do their skills demonstration – before their renewal deadline.

The best way to reach Saman Shirvani is by email since they’re always doing the skills lab and not at their desk. Their email is: Saman.Shirvani@osumc.edu

August ACLS expirations are: Dr. Matharbootham Mani, CRNAs Herbert Neff and Lara Van Huysen


VITA Training
Vita is replacing Research in View, which is being retired. Faculty and staff will experience a user-friendly interface with university branding, more robust web crawling for better publication searches, and more ways to evaluate the quality of research. Visit vita.osu.edu to explore the new tool.

Faculty-focused trainings on Vita. Staff may attend these, but they will be taught from the faculty-user perspective. Register on BuckeyeLearn. Before attending a session, please review this guide and ensure you have a Vita account. (Accessible with your OSU name.# at vita.osu.edu). If you do not have an account, you can create one and it will upload overnight.
