Additional Details

Student credentialing and onboarding for clerkships that rotate through the St. Luke’s Health System are now handled via myClinicalExchange, a web-based platform. The Idaho WWAMI office will add the rotation dates to myClinicalExchange and the St. Luke’s Health System team will then approve the rotation and review any onboarding documents within that system.

There will be a cost to create an account to use the program.

All scheduling will continue be completed through the UWSOM’s registrar’s office, so you should not be making any changes to or requesting rotations in myClinicalExchange.
