Due to our current commitment to multiple nursing school programs, we regret that we are unable to accommodate preceptor placement requests by individual students unless you are a UMHS employee. Further, we are unable to accommodate any shadow or observational experience requests.
If you are a UMHS employee in need of a clinical placement, please be aware that all placements within UMHS must be coordinated through the Clinical Placement Office in Professional Development and Education.
An affiliation agreement must be in place between the student's school of nursing and UMHS. If no agreement currently exists, please send the name, address, phone and fax numbers of the school of nursing contact person to firstname.lastname@example.org so that an agreement can be facilitated by the UMHS Contracting Office. This process varies in length of time from six to ten weeks, depending on the length of time needed for the two parties to reach an agreement of terms.
University of Michigan-Ann Arbor School of Nursing students receive first priority for preceptor placements within the Health System. Please use the following timeline when approaching UMHS staff as a preceptor for your practicum:
Once a preceptor is identified, all course material must be reviewed and approved by the preceptor. Clinical hours should be arranged directly with the preceptor.
The Clinical Placement Office must receive confirmation from the preceptor that an arrangement has been made to work with a student. Please send confirmation of your arrangement with a preceptor to email@example.com.
Please include the following information in your email:
If your school participates in ACE-MAPP, the request must also be submitted to the Clinical Placement Office by your school through the ACE-MAPP System.
All students who complete a clinical practicum at UMHS must be processed through our Identity Registration System (IRS). If your school registrar has access to our IRS, we will ask them to upload your information just prior to the start of the term.
If your school does not have access to our IRS, please submit the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org:
Please be certain that your institutional requirements are up-to-date prior to the start of your clinical rotation.
The MiChart documentation system is currently being used in the Emergency Department and Ambulatory Care. Required learning activities for students will appear on Learning Plans as follows:
To schedule your instructor led MiChart classroom training: please email MiChart-Class-Registration@med.umich.edu and indicate your student level and placement location. Please contact the MiChart training team at least 2 weeks prior to the start of your clinical rotation in order to permit sufficient time to schedule your class. You must have your Level 2 login prior to taking the class. For questions or registration you may also contact MiChart by phone at 734.232.6016.
PLEASE NOTE: Access to the MiChart system is granted upon successful completion of the required training module, classroom content and associated quiz.
It is an expectation that all instructors and students will read their UMHS Outlook email weekly.
Important updates and new information are communicated in this manner.
