2016 House Staff Orientation Schedule Outline Friday, Monday-Tuesday, June 24, 27-28

2016 House Staff Orientation
Schedule Outline
Friday, Monday-Tuesday, June 24, 27-28
Welcome! First, a few helpful notes:
This Schedule Outline is only a rough sketch of the full Orientation Schedule which will be posted here and emailed to all incoming house staff once finalized in early/mid-June. All details in this document are approximate
and may change before the schedule is finalized. We hope this helps you plan your start as a Vanderbilt resident
or clinical fellow.
Attendance will be monitored. To receive your orientation bonus, you must participate in all
Orientation activities (except the Welcome Picnic or anything noted in the final schedule as applying only to
certain house staff). At Registration the first day, you will get a personalized attendance badge. Don’t lose your
attendance badge and don’t forget to bring it with you each day! It is considered unprofessional behavior to
leave a session in progress; so plan to be present for the entirety of each orientation day.
Vanderbilt photo ID card: You must have your official Vanderbilt ID card before you begin your training
program. This ID includes library access, meal card, and building access systems. Beginning in June you can go to
the Vanderbilt Card Services Office is located in D-2107 Medical Center North (MCN) to have your badge made.
Vanderbilt Card Services Office typical hours: Monday-Friday 8:30am-1pm and 2pm-4:30pm – you can call 615-9363350 to verify hours on the day you plan to visit
Remember to Bring to Orientation the items specified in your task list (in your Welcome Packet sent early April)
as items to bring, including:
Particulate Respirator Approval Form
Identification documents for completing your I-9 (http://hr.vanderbilt.edu/i9/documents/I9-AcceptableDocuments.pdf).
Parking Agreement
State-issued Vehicle Registration (any state)
If your program rotates to the VA, two official IDs for VA Registration (i.e. Driver’s License and Vanderbilt ID with
full legal name – no nicknames)
Orientation attire is business casual, but be sure to wear comfortable shoes.
Male house staff should be clean shaven for respirator fitting.
Nursing mothers: Staff Lactation rooms are available (see full list here) and information on the room nearest to
Orientation activities will be in the full Orientation schedule.
Wi-Fi: You can connect to the network ‘vummiv’ with no security settings. This is a public Wi-Fi connection so
use care when transmitting sensitive data. After your start date, you will be able to connect to the secured Wi-Fi
network (“vuNet”). If you have any issues connecting, see this page for the unsecured “vummiv” network and
this page for the secured “vuNet” network after your start date, or the VUMC help desk (615-343-HELP) or your
program’s IT department can help you connect to it.
