Pre-Assessment Testing

Valley Medical Center requires that all applicants submit an online application in order to be considered for a position. Upon reviewing your application, you may be selected to take a pre-assessment test. Selection is based on education, recent and relevant work experience.

If you are selected to take the pre-assessment test, you will receive an invitation e-mail with all the detailed information. Selected candidates must pass the pre-assessment test for further consideration. If you do not pass the test, you must wait at least two (2) weeks before a re-take. If you do not pass the 2nd time, you must wait six (6) months before re-taking it again. Passing scores are valid for one (1) year.
