VUMC's EMR is eStar (Epic).  All students and new employees are required to take a training course on eStar/Epic.  You will be notified of the time and location of your training.  Prior to arrival, you may be asked to complete online prerequisites for eStar courses.  The prerequisites will also be found in the VUMC Learning Exchange.
