VA Clearance Paperwork

The following documentation and certification is required for student computer access for ANY VA Internal Medicine rotation (click on link provided below).  Completing this requirement is a professional expectation you have been given.  All completed paperwork needs to be to Mr. Bryan Williams or Ms. Gaines at least 2 weeks before your start date.  No codes will be issued until you have been fingerprinted and the background check results have been received.

Required VA Paperwork for rotations

If you have not logged in within 90 days you will be required to complete the entire application process again.

They need to scroll to the bottom of the page (under “Resources”) and click on Resident/Student Information.  The next page will list all the paperwork needed for VA computer access.  Forward paperwork to either Bryan Williams or Dolores Gaines for reactivation of computer codes.  Paperwork for brand new students should go to Bryan Williams due to training orientation and mandatory computer training.

Everyone is prompted to change their computer codes every 90 days.  As long as the codes are changed and kept up-to-date, the students will not have to have a new computer application completed. 

VA Remote Login:

Once you have received clearance to the VA and a computer password you must log on to a VA Computer every 90
days or you will lose access.   Use this link to stay current in the VA system.

Once you click on the link it will bring you to a screen that says "Windows Remote Desktop Web Connect".  A pop up box will appear asking if you trust the computer you are connecting to - answer yes.  This click on the Connect button WITHOUT entering any information into the boxes.  Click "OK" to the agreement.  On the next screen you will type in your VA login name and password and click "OK".  You should then be connected to the VA Computer System.
