How to get Clinical Access

*A manager must sponsor clinical access for a student in order for Epic access to even be turned on after student has completed training.

 

Students in FOUNDATIONS
  • Seattle Students
    • The SOM Compliance Office sponsors clinical access for all Seattle Foundations students. This access is automatically turned on for Seattle Foundations students at matriculation.
  • Non-Seattle Students
    • For Research and other Service Learning projects, the project lead should sponsor clinical access for students participating in a project under their mentorship. The sponsor will need to submit the UW Medicine Account Change Request Form in order to indicate the start and end date of students clinical access.

 

Students in CLINICAL
  • UW Students
    • The School of Medicine Registrar sponsors clinical access for all UW SOM students participating in clerkships. This access is automatically turned on prior to the start of the Patient Care Phase of the curriculum. Email SomReg with questions or concerns.
    • If student is on a LOA to participate in a Research or Service Learning project, the project lead should sponsor clinical access for students participating in a project under their mentorship.
