Welcome to University of Mississippi Medical Center. We are pleased that you will be joining us as you meet the requirements for your program of study. At UMMC, we are committed to providing quality patient care. It is important that you have an understanding of who we are and how we work to achieve our goals.
Forward any questions about this process to the Office of Community Education.
In preparation for your clinical experience at UMMC, please review the Orientation document and complete the Compliance Training.
To verify completion of this orientation, please do the following:
The University of Mississippi Medical Center has transitioned to a single electronic health record, Epic. The Epic program supports our vision of having "One Patient - One Record." In order that your students and instructors receive training and access to patient information, we will need required data on each individual who will be involved in clinical rotations at either the UMMC Jackson or Lexington locations.
Please do the following at least four weeks prior to the start of clinical rotations:
Student access to the electronic health record will expire based on the end date identified on the spreadsheet. A new spreadsheet must be complete for each returning student.
UMMC has adopted a "train the trainer" approach for affiliated students and respective faculty/instructors. For faculty/instructors associated with affiliate students who are new to Epic training at UMMC, we will assign them a Canvas course and provide in-class training with one of the Epic trainers. Note…This is only for new faculty/instructors who have not had exposure to Epic and will need more than the basics to oversee their students.
In addition to all requirements noted above, nursing faculty of affiliated programs must also return the following form in no later than two weeks prior to the beginning of clinical rotation: Orientation Acknowledgement Form. Please submit to the clinical affiliations coordinator for your discipline.
The University of Mississippi Medical Center has established a mandatory flu vaccine program effective October 1, 2014. It is the responsibility of outside institutions to assure vaccination of their students and faculty participating in activities on UMMC campuses prior to beginning assignments during influenza season. Acknowledgement of vaccination or declination for religious or medical reasons will be ascertained through UMMC’s Affiliated Student Process. Failure to comply with this policy will result in banning of the non-UMMC student(s) and faculty from all UMMC campuses during the influenza season.
