If your institution created web-GEMs assignments before September, 2016, you are “grandfathered” into web-GEMs on Med-U and your institution will have one year free access to web-GEMs through June, 2018. MedU has already notified users who are ‘grandfathered’ about the process and has sent information on initiating your free access to the course through their new learning management system. If your institution is grandfathered and you haven't already done so, please complete the MedU onboarding form here so you can begin the process of onboarding onto the MedU platform.
