Transition to Clerkships
Welcome to all things technical in the Clerkship Transition course!
As a future M3, you will be spending your time in clinical (health system) buildings, and as such we need to make sure you have your laptops and mobile devices configured appropriately. This means your devices should be configured to connect to Health System wireless networks and you should confirm you have access to (and are regularly checking) your Health System email account.
Note: The volume of email you will be receiving at your Health System account is about to go up dramatically. If you’ve been checking two accounts, now might be the time to consider installing MobileIron on your mobile device(s) so your Health System email becomes more readily accessible.
Next step is to set up your access to the Health System VPN (virtual private network) which allows you to run higher security Health System applications, namely Epic. Your Epic access should already be requested, and this will be confirmed when you attend the training. You must also:
- Request a VPN token
- Install your VPN token
- Install and Use Epic (includes directions for Mac and PC)
You will take multiple shelf exams on your own laptop during your Clerkship year. To ensure you will be successful, you must certify your laptop for the exam. Click here page for more details and to run the test on your laptop.
Finally, here’s an Oasis requirements checklist sign off refresher should you need a review.
