Department Orientation Coming Up Soon!
The Department of Family Medicine has a Department Orientation, held several times a year? And it’s NOT just for newbies – anyone can attend! Orientation happens 3-4 times a year, when we get a small group of new hires clustered together. The next one is May 16 from 8:15 – 3:30.
At orientation, faculty and staff get information on a variety of topics from the subject matter experts themselves! A sample day looks like this:
- Department Overview/Who’s Who
- Department Administration
- Clinical Programs Overview
- Policies and Position Information
- Research Programs Overview
- IT Overview
- Integrated Communications/Events & Recognition/Special Projects
- CU Portal
- DFM General Information & Financial Systems
- Walking Tour of campus
