5/9/2018 INFORMATION

The Clinical Placement Office at Michigan Medicine coordinates all student nurse placements within inpatient and ambulatory care areas. We determine all undergraduate student placement locations, while graduate student placements are determined by the individual Michigan Medicine practitioners. The Clinical Placement Office also makes certain that all compliance requirements are met prior to placement accommodation. Unfortunately, we do not clinically place visiting observer or shadow experience requests. Please contact the unit/area for further information. You and the unit/area must follow all policy guidelines.

AFFILIATION AGREEMENTS

All student training between Michigan Medicine and non-UM schools of nursing require an affiliation agreement. Only a Michigan Medicine approved affiliation agreement template is used. Minor changes may be requested by the school of nursing (SON) for consideration, but major changes will not be accepted. In addition, only certain individuals are authorized to negotiate and execute affiliation agreements on behalf of Michigan Medicine. As such, all affiliation agreements will originate from our Univeristy of Michiagn Health System (UMHS) Contracting Office. The AFFILIATION PAGE will provide you detailed information on obtaining an affiliation agreement between your school and Michigan Medicine. There are specific timelines that must be followed due to the length of time typically needed to secure the agreement.

CLINICAL PLACEMENT GUIDELINES

All placement requests must be coordinated through the Clinical Placement Office in order to ensure a consistent process. Students and instructors are asked not to approach staff directly to inquire about cohort group or individual placements. This will ensure fair outcomes in a highly competitive process and provide increased satisfaction for all.

  1. All placement requests must be coordinated through the Clinical Placement Office in order to ensure a consistent process. Undergraduate instructors are asked not to approach staff directly to inquire about cohort group or observational placements. This will ensure fair outcomes in a highly competitive process and provide increased satisfaction for all.
  2. The maximum number of students in any cohort group is eight (8).
  3. All student placement requests must be submitted by the SON through ACEMAPP.
  4. All students (including employees) and instructors MUST enroll in ACEMAPP for onboarding.
  5. Due to the increasing number of grad student placement needs at Michigan Medicine, we are no longer able to automatically place graduate students from external schools. Graduate nursing students will be clinically placed at Michigan Medicine with the priority being to place UM School of Nursing Ann Arbor and Michigan Medicine Employee students that go to external schools. Consideration will also be given to UM School of Nursing Flint students. It is Michigan Medicines goal to place as many graduate students as possible, but we are currently not able to meet the demands. Graduate nursing students will be clinically placed at Michigan Medicine according to the following priority:
  • 1 ST PRIORITY UMSN Ann Arbor Students & Michigan Medicine Employees Attending External Schools
  • 2 ND PRIORITY UM School of Nursing Flint Students
  • 3 RD PRIORITY Non-Employees Attending External Schools

DEADLINES FOR PLACEMENTS

All placement requests follow the Affiliation Agreement, ACEMAPP, IRS, and Compliance DEADLINES. You can find this information on our CALENDAR PAGE.

PLEASE NOTE: It is the responsibility of the school of nursing placement coordinator to make certain all undergrad instructors and students are familiar with our website to find information and know how to contact us with questions regarding onboarding.
