Required Online Modules

You are required to complete four online modules prior to your first day of class. This is an online course covering the Cerner PowerChart application. Below you will find a link to the Medical Student eLearning website containing the online modules that medical students are required to complete.

There are four online modules to complete:

  1. PowerOrders
  2. Medication Reconciliation
  3. Discharge Process for Providers
  4. PowerNotes

As a prerequisite, complete all online modules prior to attending class. Log into each module and be sure to print each certificate of completion at the end.

  1. Complete the online modules within a two-week timeframe of attending class in order to retain the information learned.
  2. Take the online modules in the order defined on the website.
  3. The estimated time to complete all four modules is about two hours. This can be done at an individual pace over the two-week timeframe prior to attending class.
  4. Print off the certificate at the end of each module and bring with you on your first day. You will have additional computer training during your first week of class.
