Question ACLS and PALS in our residency profile

Hi guys,

I was wondering if doing ACLS and PALS before residency will add on some stars to application or not.

Default Good but not so important

It's good to have it mentioned in ERAS but it does not have that great impact.

By the way, if you do it, you will be wasting money because already the residency program will pay it for you during your early weeks of orientation.
