Steps to re-certify as an Operational Medical Director (OMD)

The Northern Virginia EMS Council has a vested interest in helping our regional Operational Medical Directors maintain their certifications. We are here to assist you through this process. Please send all documents to the Council and we will assure they are filled properly with the Office of EMS. You may also send them directly to This email address is being protected from spambots.

You will need the following documents:

Step 1.     A signed and dated OMD application form.

                                  EMSPhysicianApplication 1 Page 1

                         Click for a copy of this form.

(Note: It is recommended on page 2 of this form, located at the top, you select both OMD and PCD.

This way, you are certified to function as both an OMD as well as a Physician Course Director (PCD allows you to approve CE classes))

 Step 2.     Provide a copy of your current Virginian Physician License.

 Step 3.     Provide a copy of your Board Certification in Emergency Medicine OR copies of ACLS, ATLS, and PALS certifications (If you are not Board Certified in Emergency Medicine).

 Step 4.     All the items listed above is what is needed to be sent to the Council or to Marybeth Mizell.  Once submitted, the VA Office of EMS will process the application and issue the appropriate credentials.
