GME PeopleSoft User's Manual


The University of Minnesota tracks all residents and fellows training under Student Records in the PeopleSoft database.

GME Administration will admit residents and fellows into the correct programs when they begin their training.  All residents and fellows must be enrolled for class every Spring, Summer, and Fall semester by the departments according to the schedule established by the University of Minnesota Medical School.  See "Important dates and information" below.

Important reminders

Enrollment of University of Minnesota Medical School Graduates

It is important to remember: Do not enroll University of Minnesota Medical School graduates in their program courses until they have been conferred out of Medical School by the Medical School’s Registrar. GME Administration will send out an announcement as soon as they have all been conferred (estimated to occur in late May/early June). Remember to backdate your enrollment to avoid a late registration fee.
The reasons for this are twofold: 1) Because of the way the PeopleSoft system operates, the Registrar will be unable to confer them from Medical School if they are enrolled in residency program courses; and 2) enrolling them in program courses before they are conferred out of Medical School will generate Medical School tuition invoices.

If the Registrar is unable to confer Medical School graduates in PeopleSoft due to early residency course enrollment, the program will be required to un-enroll them from their program courses and then re-enroll them again once they’ve been conferred. Don’t create extra work for yourself – Please wait until GME Administration has notified you that you can begin enrolling the U of MN Medical School graduates into their program courses.

Course enrollment of graduating residents and fellows

It is important to remember: Do NOT enroll graduating residents/fellows in program courses if the semester end-date falls after their graduation date (for example, if a trainee is graduating from their residency or fellowship program before August 31, do not register them for Summer Term. The Office of the Registrar will be unable to confer them from their residency/fellowship training program if they are enrolled in program courses that extend beyond their graduation date. The program will be required to un-enroll them from that semester’s courses so that conferring can be completed.

Clearance/conferring of graduating residents/fellows

  • MMCGME enters data submitted by the program from completed Graduation/Transition Forms.
  • GME will work with MMCGME to pull reports from RMS required to confer R/F. GME provides conferring data to the Office of the Registrar for all programs.
  • Please do not submit the "clearance template" spreadsheet to the Office of the Registrar.
