U Med Cred - Digital Credentials at UMMC

Welcome to the U Med Cred information page and request portal!

digital-credentialing-logo.jpgOur digital credential initiative, U Med Cred, represents the dedication to teaching and learning excellence that the University of Mississippi Medical Center embraces for all schools and in all departments for students, staff and faculty. A digital credential is an information-rich visual exemplification of a verifiable achievement that contains metadata explaining the context, meaning, processes and outcomes of learning engagements.

U Med Cred credentials will display skills and experiences that may not be displayed on an academic transcript, a resume or CV. They are linked to secure electronic files which are shareable and can demonstrate skills and learning outcomes to prospective employers, colleagues, faculty and peers. U Med Cred credentials may be requested for the following areas:

  • Clinical skills
  • Professional development (for faculty and staff)
  • Simulation
  • Student professional developmentĀ 

When aligned with measurable learning objectives, digital credentials help UMMC provide a common currency for skills, career development and workforce advancement. U Med Cred is provided as an enterprise-wide initiative. Therefore, with supervisory approval, UMMC faculty, staff and students may submit a request for approval of a U Med Cred credential by clicking here. To view available credentials, visit our Acclaim enterprise site. Descriptions and requirements are detailed for each credential.
