Continuing EducationMemorial University Medical Center provides a variety of ongoing continuing education, including CPR certification, basic life support, advanced life support, and professional and leadership development. We also offer residency programs for experienced and newly graduated registered nurses. Many departments in the hospital have allocated funds for continuing education to enable Team Members to attend professional conferences.
Tuition ReimbursementFull-time and part-time Team Members can be reimbursed for taking classes to further their education. Courses approved for reimbursement must contribute to the Team Member's development and be relevant to his or her current position or the specific needs of the organization.

It is part of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine and is operated by Mercer University School of Medicine. In addition to medical journals and books, the library offers state-of-the-art electronic resources.

Key 100Each year, new Team Members are selected to serve on the Key 100. They are chosen because they demonstrate excellent customer service skills and informal leadership. Key 100 members interact with Senior Leadership on a regular basis, participate in leadership development courses, and assist with community projects. An average of 10 percent of Key 100 members move into leadership roles or obtain a promotion during their participation with the Key 100.
