Did You Know?

The School of Medicine holds a SOM New Staff Orientation every other month?  This purpose of this short, informative program is to provide:

  • Perspective as to how the SOM fits into the university and how the staff member fits within the SOM.
  • A better understanding of the SOM’s structure and policies.
  • Information, resources, and opportunities which are specific, pertinent, and unique to the SOM, as well as, university-wide.
  • A sense of role and responsibility that he or she shares in the SOM.

The Orientation DOES NOT repeat information from University Orientation.  It includes three primary sections: 1) History of Emory and School of Medicine, 2) School-specific Policies, and 3) Resources.  It is geared to the newer employee, however if it has been a while and you would like to attend just for the information – I would love to see you there.  It is a great opportunity to network with staff from all across the School and perhaps even discover people in your own building!

The next scheduled SOM New Staff Orientation is June 13, 2013 from 8:00am-12:00noon.  Registration is required in ELMS and a message with details including LOCATION will be sent to everyone who is registered. The link to ELMS is: http://www.emory.edu/elms-training/ Log-in, go to Search Catalog and type: SOM.  You should see the SOM New Staff Orientation in the list.  Click on Enroll and follow the instructions until you see a screen that says Enrollment Complete.
