The Education Services Department provides the Wesley Medical Center hospital employees, medical staff and the greater Hattiesburg region with advanced training on health topics. The department serves as a resource to each department within the hospital, assisting with department specific educational needs. We also coordinate weekly continuing medical education activities for the medical staff. Plus, organize special training events including classes in CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation), ACLS (advanced cardiovascular life support), PALS (pediatric advanced life support), Moderate Sedation and NRP (neonatal resuscitation program). First Aid, CPR and various health classes are also available to businesses, schools and other organizations in our community.
