UVA Health Orientation
Welcome to UVA Health! We are glad you are here! UVA Health includes a hospital, a Level I Trauma Center, a nationally recognized cancer center and heart center, and primary and specialty clinics throughout Central Virginia. We rank among the nation’s top hospitals because our doctors, nurses, and caregivers provide a wide-variety of high quality, specialized care to patients from across Virginia and beyond. No matter where you are working, patient-centered care is the first priority.
Staff of the Medical Center and University Physicians Group (UPG), staff and faculty of the School of Medicine, and Advanced Practice Practitioners make up UVA Health. This will be the first step toward building a successful career in healthcare. Depending on your role, UVA Health Orientation (UVA-HO) may take several days to complete. Once you have completed UVA-HO, you may participate in department-specific orientation; your department’s onboarding process may take you through your first year.
