UMICH and Michigan Medicine Passwords

Prior to April 2024, all Michigan Medicine employees maintained two primary passwords, known as a UMICH (Level-1) password and a Michigan Medicine (Level-2) password. Between April and December 2024, passwords will be simplified and everyone at Michigan Medicine will move to one UMICH password for all logins. If you joined Michigan Medicine after April 3, 2024, you have only a UMICH password that works to access all assigned resources.

All University of Michigan employees are assigned a user ID called a uniqname, which is made up of 3 to 8 alphabetic characters. Your uniqname along with your UMICH password is used to access many U-M resources.

Please note: Your uniqname also forms the base for your Michigan Medicine email address:

Passwords / Passcodes

Your uniqname and UMICH password grants you access to Michigan Medicine resources needed to do your work. Though your UMICH password is used to access most Michigan Medicine applications, you may have additional passwords for other systems, databases, or files.

Please note: Health Information Technology & Services (HITS) has the means to track and audit your access to work-related files and to identify your activity within them.

Password Protection

Data security is a top priority to protect our patients, our research, and our people. Your password should be unique -- do not reuse your UMICH password on other sites or share it with others. 

The Safe Computing website offers more details and information about employee and institutional responsibilities surrounding the protection of patient care information.

Updating Your Password

Ensure your password is easy to remember and type. If you believe your password is compromised, change it immediately. Manage your password and Michigan Medicine profile on the user profile page:
