Clinical Instructors and Lab Instructors who do not have an @mghihp.edu email address will not be able to sign up for an MGH Institute Zoom account on their own. If you are a Clinical Instructor, a Lab Instructor, or someone who oversees Clinical/Lab Instructors, please open a ticket with the MGH Institute Helpdesk for assistance with getting Zoom accounts set up.
For Clinical/Lab Instructors who are Partners employees, the IT team will work to get an @mghihp.edu email alias added to their Partners account. This is required on our end because the MGH Institute and Partners Healthcare have different licensing agreements with Zoom.
When you sign up for Zoom, it uses the email address to determine which instance you will be licensed to — @mghihp.edu addresses are associated with the MGH Institute instance of Zoom; Partners email addresses such @partners.org and @mgh.harvard.edu are associated with the Partners instance of Zoom. Clinical/Lab Instructors will need access to the MGH Institute instance to host meetings of unlimited length and use Zoom in D2L.
Once the @mghihp.edu email alias is created, Clinical/Lab Instructors will use that @mghihp.edu address to log in to Zoom.
For Clinical/Lab Instructors who are not Partners employees, an mghihp.edu alias will not be created. The IT team will create an MGH Institute Zoom account with the email address listed in D2L.
If you have any questions about this process or need further assistance, please open a ticket with the MGH Institute Helpdesk.
*Note - The creation of this mghihp.edu email alias does not change the Partners network account. It is just another secondary email address added to that account. Emails sent to this address will go to the same Inbox as other Partners emails.
