Typhon

We know new systems can be intimidating. We want to set you up for success. This page features tips, FAQ's and instructions on how to use Typhon Group's Student Tracking System.

What is Typhon? 

Typhon is a student tracking system for health education programs. The College of Nursing uses this program to track all clinical, fieldwork, and residency rotations as well as associated evaluations.


Getting Started

Logging in

Typhon login information will be sent to your University email account prior to your first clinical rotation.  The email is sent by the Typhon system; if it does not appear in your inbox when it is expected to, check your spam folder.  In addition to checking your spam folder please contact the Clinical Placements office to verify we have your correct email address.

  • Helpful tip: bookmark this login page for future reference.

The very first time you log in to the system, you will be asked to agree to the “End User License Agreement.”  Then you will fill in your contact information in the “Modify Account Information” section.  Our offices use this information to contact you.  It is not visible to other students or faculty/preceptors.

Log In Links

Forgot Login or Password

In case you forget your login and password, to the right of the password box is a link that says "Forgot Login or Password". All you have to do is click on this link and enter your e-mail address and press submit. The system will verify that you are a student and will immediately e-mail your login and password information to you.

Messages & Alerts

Always check your messages and alerts found on the lower right hand corner of your home screen. You may find some very important information from us.


For Students

Case Log Entries

There is a learning curve... this is a lot of information to collect. It may seem like a lot at first but we promise it gets easier!

Many students say that the first two to three days it may take 5-10 minutes to enter each encounter. Rest assured that drastically drops by the end of the first week. By the end of the second week that time is less than half that per encounter. Be patient and review Typhon instructional videos and the tips below.

  • You should always enter today's cases TODAY - don't wait until the end of the week to enter them.
  • When you complete your data entry for the day, be sure to log out. This ends your session on the server. If you are at a community computer (like a clinical site or a library), it's also a good idea to log out and close the Internet Browser. This will prevent the next person from pressing the "back" button to see what you did.
  • If a preceptor name or clinical facility is missing in a drop down list, email us HSC-CON-placements@salud.unm.edu

Your Questions Answered

  • Go to the Data Entry Section Menu
  • Look for the Help Section
  • Click on Blank Case Log Worksheet
  • Print
  • Each day you are in clinical you will spend time in activities that are not directly related to time spent with the patient or the preceptor.
  • Go to the Main Menu
  • Look for Time Log
  • Click Enter/Edit Daily Time Log
  • Choose the appropriate course [if you have set this up as your default, this information will come up automatically]
  • The blue section is automatically entered from your case logs for each patient.
  • Fill in the white sections for the other clinical activities. At the end of the day, the time log should reflect all the time spent in clinical that day where 480 minutes = 8 hours. You will often spend more than 8 hours in a setting and your Daily Time Log should reflect this.
  • In the end, your Time Log Report for each course must at least equal the time required.
  • The Clinical Conference Log is there for your convenience to enter clinical educational conferences you attend while you are a student. These conferences include but are not limited to morning or noon educational conferences, professional conferences, etc.
  • Go the main menu.
  • Look for Help.
  • Click on Set up Defaults. Choose your courses, preceptor, and site from the list for that term. You will need to do this each term and as you change preceptors/clinical sites.
