6. Required online modules

In preparation for beginning clinical rotations at Ochsner there are two groups of learning modules that have been developed to assist students in this phase of medical education.  The OCS Administration has implemented this process electronically for students to complete these requirements at their own pace and convenience prior to attending orientation.  

  • Ochsner Academics Student Orientation -  this curriculum is designed to provide an overview of Ochsner-specific policies, procedures and guidelines as they apply to students at Ochsner Health System.
  • Epic Modules-Medical Student Training -  Epic is the Electronic Medical Record System used throughout Ochsner Health System.  Medical students must complete the Medical Student Training Modules in order to access Epic.

These modules can be accessed via OHSLink, by logging in to the Ochsner Learning Network (OLN).  Refer to the Home Page Notices on New Innovations for login details and the OLN Login Flyer.

In compliance with the Joint Commission and Regulatory Standards, students are required to complete the above learning modules prior to beginning clinical rotations.  If these modules have not been completed, students will NOT be allowed to begin the clinical rotation and therefore, will be considered an unexcused absence.
