Medical Student Rotations at Seattle Children's

PEDS 669 & PEDS 687 Neonatal Pediatric Clerkship

Welcome to the UWMC NICU Rotation! The folks in the NICU put together a really useful document with information on schedules, student expectations, and general orientation information. You can find it here.

Epic Access/Training

Students on the NICU rotations are required to complete UW Epic training that grants access to the EMR at UWMC.

All UWSOM students are already registered for the required Epic Orders IP/OP Medical Student training.

Login to the UW Medicine Learning Hub to check your learner dashboard for this training. You only need to complete the required Epic Orders IP/OP Medical Student training once in order to get basic level access.

You will use your UW Medicine account to access Epic and can maintain account credentials at MyUW.

If you have any questions about training or access, contact the UW Medicine Help Desk at 206-543-7012 or the Epic Hotline directly at 206-520-2255.

Badges

You will need 2 badges for your NICU rotation:

  1. UWMC Photo ID Badge:
    • UW students with a UWMC badge: There is nothing additional you need to do for hospital credentialing.
    • UW students without a UWMC badge: Please contact the UWSOM Academic Affairs office in A300 (206-543-5560) to inquire if they already have a badge printed for you. If they do not already have your badge, they will provide you the necessary form to take to the badging office in BB120. See below for info on the UWMC Public Safety/badging office.
    • Visiting students: the Pediatric Medical Student Program will send your info to the UWMC badging office. Please stop by the badging office in BB120 on the first day to have a photo taken and badge printed. See below for info on the UWMC Public Safety/badging office.
  2. Prox Card:
    • UW Students: Prox/door access to the relevant areas of the hospital will be added to your Husky Card. If you do not already have a Husky Card, you can obtain one in the badging office in BB120. See below for info on the UWMC Public Safety/badging office.
    • Visiting Students: You can obtain a temporary Husky Card in the badging office. See below for info on the UWMC Public Safety/badging office.

UWMC Public Safety/Badging Office:

Hours: Monday through Friday, 7:30AM to 4:30PM.

Contact: 206-598-4909. No appointment is necessary.

A map of the Health Sciences Center is here. For BB-120, the letter(s) is the wing and it is on the 1st floor.

Make sure you bring a state-issued photo ID (driver’s license, passport, etc.).

Where to report

Once you have the required badges (see above), head to the UWMC NICU, located in the Mountlake Tower.  Turn left and walk about one block until you see on the wall ahead of you “Mountlake Tower”.  Turn right and follow signs to the Mountlake Tower.  Take the elevator to the 4th floor.  Take a right when getting off the elevator, the front desk will be immediately ahead.  The front desk person will notify April Millar, RN, that a medical student has arrived.

Evaluations for Your PEDS 669 NICU Elective

The 360 evaluations are anonymous and are meant to get feedback from people outside the division for our fellows, so they receive a well-rounded evaluation of their clinical performance. The evaluations are sent electronically through our residency management program called MedHub. This process is very important for the success of our neonatology fellowship program and your input is appreciated!
