Student-Run Free Clinic for University of Michigan: Login Tips for Practice Fusion (EHR)

This page offers a little help if you are a Faculty working at the clinic and logging into the EHR.




Working at the UM Student Run Free Clinic is one of my great teaching pleasures.

  • Logging into the computer at the clinic and then logging into the Practice Fusion (PF) Electronic health record (EHR) can be tricky.
  • I made a couple of mistakes (several times) and this post and accompanying video sequence may help you save time logging in.

You always have a great group of students on site.
