Epic is the electronic medical record used at Scripps. To receive access to Epic, students and instructors are required to complete Epic eLearning modules. This training consists of several online eLearning modules that are specific to each discipline. At this time, these eLearning modules must be completed on a computer at Scripps Health. Student Placements will send the Epic eLearning modules in the email with the Corporate ID and Computer Access to the instructor or preceptor once the student’s computer access is activated. The email will contain the direct links to the Epic eLearning modules specific to the discipline, an Epic eLearning Attestation form, and information regarding Epic drop-in clinics.

Epic drop-in clinics:

Student Placements has Epic Drop-in Clinics hosted at Scripps Center for Learning and Innovation for students and instructors. Please refer to the Epic Drop-in Clinic Instructions for the rules and instructions for attending these clinics. The annual Epic Drop-in Calendar with the upcoming dates and times of these clinics is below.
Please Note: All clinics are self-directed and on a first come, first serve basis. Clinic dates are subject to cancelation without notification.
