How to Convert a User Type

You specify whether a user is a physician at the time the user profile is created. Users whose type is Physician have additional fields in their profile for information such as specialty type and sub-specialty; otherwise, the types are identical. You can change the type of a user at any time.

To change the type of a user:

  1. Locate the user whose profile you want to edit. See How to Find a User.
  2. To the right of the user's name, click the View link.

    The profile for that user is displayed.

  3. In the Convert to field at the bottom of the profile, do either of the following:
    • To indicate that the user is a non-physician staff member, click Non-Physician Staff.
    • To indicate that the user is a physician, click Physician.

    The user account is converted to the new type.
