1.1. Welcome To HSPnet

Welcome to HSPnet 


We are pleased to welcome you as a new user of the Health Sciences Placement Network, or HSPnet

This Quick Reference Guide provides essential information to get you started, and includes helpful reminders to support the occasional user.

 User ID, Password, and Reminder Question

Your user ID and temporary password have been sent to your current email account.  Your user ID is typically your first initial and last name (e.g. the user ID for Sally Brown = sbrown) or email address. For students it is typically your student id. Don't worry about capital or small letters – either case works fine.

If you forget your password, click Help with forgotten password on your provincial login screen.  You will be prompted to answer the reminder question you selected during your first login, and a new temporary password will be sent to you immediately via email.

If you can't remember the answer to your reminder question or you experience other login problems:

HSPnet user ids and passwords are the responsibility of your school or Agency.

Students – Please contact your practicum coordinator at your school who can help with your login issues.
Other Users – Please contact HSPnet administrator (Placing Coordinator or Receiving Coordinator) at your Agency who can help with your login.     

Your password expires every 90 days, and on the login following this expiry date you will be required to enter a new password before proceeding.  You will also be asked to agree to a set of User Responsibilities in HSPnet, excerpted from HSPnet Policies on Privacy, Security and Data Access.  The comprehensive Policies are available on the website at www.hspcanada.net.
