STEP 3          PLACEMENT REQUEST SUBMISSION

All clinical placement requests must be submitted through the Alliance for Clinical Experience Matching and Placement Program (ACEMAPP), a product of Michigan Health Council. If your school is not currently a member of ACEMAPP, your school will need to register to submit student information and request clinical placements with Michigan Medicine. Schools may contact ACEMAPP through the ACEMAPP website at acemapp.org or call 1-844-223-4292.

All students participating in a clinical placement at Michigan Medicine must enroll in ACEMAPP for the tracking of your clinical rotation request, compliance requirements, and institutional requirements. All student types will pay the $50.00 a year fee to be in the ACEMAPP program.

If you have more than one preceptor, please have your school submit a seprate request for the additional preceptor.

STEP 4          SECURE PORTAL SYSTEM

All students completing a clinical practicum at Michigan Medicine are required to have access to our clinical systems. This access is processed by Health Information Technology & Services (HITS) through our Secure Portal System. Starting the Spring/Summer 2023 term (April), each school of nursing that participates in clinical placements with Michigan Medicine must have a registrar or designee identified who can upload student information into our Secure Portal System. Please have your school of nursing contact April Stingo at astingo@med.umich.edu to begin the process of obtaining access to our Secure Portal System.

STEP 5          COMPUTER LOGINS (Non-UMSN Students who are not Michigan Medicine Employees)

You will be granted access to our computer systems based on your placement location and the specifications of your role within Michigan Medicine.

Health Information Technology & Services (HITS) processes the access needed for all students. You will receive an email from IdentityManagementTeam@med.umich.edu 1-2 weeks prior to your clinical start date. This will be sent to the email address your school provided to us. In the email from Identity Management, you will be given a link and step-by-step instructions to set your password(s). This email is only valid for 30 days from the date it goes out.

Please be certain to validate access code (uniqname/username and password) functionality before beginning clinical hours if you are new to Michigan Medicine. If there are any issues with IDs or passwords, please contact the Health Information Technology & Services (HITS) service desk at 734-936-8000, OPTION 5.

NOTE: Only contact Clinical Placement if HITS does not resolve your issue. If you contact Clinical Placement, you will need to provide a HITS ticket number for us to escalate.

STEP 6          COMPLETE INSTITUTIONAL REQUIREMENTS

Each clinical nursing student at Michigan Medicine 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 Cornerstone Learning and institutional requirements in ACEMAPP. Please review the Institutional Requirement List to verify what must be completed. Your ability to begin your clinical hours may be delayed if these requirements are not complete prior to your start date.
