If you are an undergraduate student looking for a clinical placement at UMHS, please see the Prospective Student page. Please be aware that all placements within UMHS must be coordinated through the Clinical Placement Office.



It is an expectation that all students will read their UMHS Outlook email weekly.
Important updates and new information are communicated in this manner.

For cohort group students, please click on the steps below to read detailed information on the process that must be followed at the start of each term.

Step 1          Computer Logins/Access Codes

All students with a clinical placement at UMHS will be granted access to our computer systems based on the placement location and the specifications of your role within UMHS.

Please be certain to validate access code (uniqname or user ID and password) functionality before beginning clinical hours. If there are any issues with IDs or passwords, please contact the MCIT Service Desk at 734-936-8000.

Step 2          Completing Institutional Requirements

Each clinical nursing student at UMHS must complete a group of institutional requirements prior to the start of your clinical practicum. Required learning activities include training to the electronic health record (MiChart) in MLearning and institutional requirements in ACEMAPP.

MiChart Training Requirements

  1. Undergraduate students in the inpatient/ICU setting will complete eLearning modules in MLearning to satisfy their MiChart training requirement.
  2. Undergraduate students in OB, the PACUs, ED or ambulatory care must complete classroom training to satisfy their MiChart training requirement. The classes will be scheduled by UMSN and the Clinical Placement Office.
  3. Undergraduate students who need access to MiChart in order to view data must complete a Clinical View Only eLearning activity. This includes students at MVN for Community Health and students in Leadership placements.
  4. To access MLearning, go to and log in with your Username and Level 2 Password. MLearning works best in the Chrome browser.
  5. Access to the documentation system will only be granted after successful completion of all training, including required quizzes.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are an employee at UMHS who currently uses Michart, you will have a dual account in MiChart. You must choose which role you’re functioning in upon login, which will allow you to access all pertinent tools for that role. Please see the MiChart Tip Sheet entitled “MiChart Account Manager-For Users with Multiple Accounts” on the MiChart website for complete instructions. You should also receive this information in an email from MiChart Security when the new role is created for you.

For any issues or questions related to MLearning, please email MLearning at for assistance.
