Sign Up for Peer to Peer Mentoring- Help a Colleague!

When it comes to the day-to-day use of Cerner in your clinical area, no one knows better than you regarding what you actually need to know to get through your day. Share that knowledge with a colleague! Whether it’s a new medical staff in your discipline or someone returning from leave who needs a refresher, ‘physician to physician’ is the best way to ensure that we are teaching what needs to be learned.

If you are willing to provide a 1-to-1 ‘crash course’ session for a colleague in your area who would benefit, please sign up online here>. You will be contacted when we have a need that matches with your knowledge area(s). Funding at standard sessional rates will be provided for your time.
