The Medical School offers some software packages to users associated with University of Michigan Medical School for installation on university-owned workstations. Users are required to have an appointment with the Medical School in order to be eligible to download and install the software.
Currently, eligibility for Medical School applications is determined by appointment, not affiliation. In order to download software, software users must be members of UMMS Faculty or Staff. Generally, students are NOT eligible to download software. ITS disabled the ability to look up an individual's group memberships in MCommunity because of privacy concerns, but individuals can determine their own group memberships, which determine eligibility for Medical School applications, in the following manner:
- In a browser window, go to the MCommunity page: http://mcommunity.umich.edu
- Search for your uniqname and then select your name from the Search Results list.
- While viewing your entry, click the Groups tab. A list of all group memberships will appear.
- At least one of the following groups must appear in the list for the individual to be eligible for Medical School software.
- UMMS Medical School Faculty
- UMMS Medical School Staff
- UMMS Post-Doctoral Fellows
House Officers can also qualify for Medical Software, but may need to contact email@example.com to obtain access to the download page.
|In order to install Medical School software on a workstation, the requester must be an administrator of the machine. Machines assigned a TermID number (CoreImage workstations) are managed by MCIT and generally users will not have the ability to install software. MCIT has packages of some Medical School applications that can be pushed to Core machines; a list is available in the MCIT Packages for Core Workstations section at the bottom of this page.|
|Applications are only available to individual users!|
Medical School software cannot be installed on public or shared machines. An individual is not permitted to use a uniqname to install software on any machine that is not that individual's dedicated machine. This installation would not be in compliance with existing licensing agreements.
The applications offered by the Medical School are keyed unless otherwise indicated. The KeyClient software, listed at the top of the software list, must be downloaded and installed on the computer in addition to any application software (unless otherwise noted). The KeyClient establishes a connection with the KeyServer when the application is launched. If a license is available, the KeyServer releases a license to the KeyClient and the application will proceed to load. Note that this procedure requires keyed applications to have a network connection in order to launch. Please visit the KeyServer page for troubleshooting information.
Additionally, only machines on the greater University of Michigan campus network will be allowed to launch the software. If the user needs to use the software from offsite, a VPN client will also need to be installed on the machine. Additional information about VPN client software is available on the VPN page.
Many of the applications available through the Medical School have corresponding MCIT packages containing the keyed version of the software. Note, however, that users are required to have an appointment with the Medical School in order to be eligible to use this software. Users affiliated with the hospital system without a Medical School appointment are not permitted to use the Medical School software by the current licensing agreements.
