As a healthcare organization, Intermountain requires immunizations as a condition of employment, outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), because they protect us and others—patients, members, colleagues, families, and communities—from illness and disease.

All employees, including those not involved with patient care, must receive the following vaccinations:

  • MMR
  • Tdap
  • Varicella 
  • 2-step TB
  • Annual Influenza
  • Hepatitis B for some jobs
  • COVID-19

On October 27, 2021, Intermountain announced a COVID-19 vaccine requirement for all employees. The requirement also applies to affiliated providers, partners, vendors, contractors, temporary staff, locum tenens, students, clinical faculty, and volunteers. This carefully evaluated decision is in response to federal requirements that impact us as a result of the Biden Administration’s announcement on September 9. Fully vaccinated means receiving two doses of the Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, or one dose of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.

Limited exemptions may be made for documented medical contraindications or religious beliefs that object to vaccinations.

More information about vaccination requirements, including what documentation to provide, where to get your vaccines, the exemption process, and more, can be discussed with an Intermountain recruiter.

Licensure and Certification

To ensure competency of our caregivers, professional licensure and certification may be required.

Licenses must be current and must enable providers to practice within the state of Utah or Idaho, depending on the position location.

Proof of required licensure or certification must be obtained prior to employee's start date.

Basic Life Support (BLS) for Healthcare Providers Certification

Many positions require current valid Basic Life Support (BLS) certification. Original documentation of current certification must be provided prior to New Employee Orientation or the first day of work.

We recommend obtaining BLS certification before applying for positions with this requirement. Candidates without a current certification may not be considered.

Qualifying certifications may be obtained from any of the following organizations: 


In clinical facilities, education is a Joint Commission requirement. Intermountain verifies both degree attainment and educational institution accreditation following an offer of employment. 

Post-secondary educational institution and programs accreditation is based on the US Department of Education's database. To verify an institution's accreditation, visit the U. S. Department of Education.
