Welcome to UVA Health!

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 plus, a six-floor, 425,000 square-foot Emergency Department tower. 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 what your role, or where you are working, patient-centered care is our priority.

The following groups attend UVA Health Orientation:

  • Medical Center Staff - new hires, re-hires, registered nurse travelers, tech travelers and temporary workers hired by Talent Flex for UVA Health work.
  • School of Medicine Staff - new hires
  • School of Medicine Faculty - research faculty. Note: clinical faculty attend orientation provided by the Clinical Staff Office
  • University Physicians Group - new hires, new providers

The session occurs on the first day as a Medical Center employee and on or about the first day as a School of Medicine or University Physicians Group employee. Depending on the role, orientation and training may take up to two weeks or more to complete. Once all required training is completed, employees may also participate in department-specific orientation.

Onboarding Essentials For Medical Center HR 106: Orientation of New Employees - Medical Center

UVA Health Orientation

The University of Virginia is closely monitoring the rapidly evolving status of COVID-19 and consulting with experts at UVA Health, the Virginia Department of Health, the CDC, and other partners. Our top priority is the safety of the members of the University community, and UVA will make decisions based on public health guidance and current conditions here and elsewhere.

As part of updating processes in response to COVID-19, please note that the in-person UVA Health Orientation has been modified. New hires will no longer attend this session in person.

Further information about asynchronous virtual orientation will be emailed to the new hire’s personal email address once the new hire has been cleared for hire. The manager of the department will be copied on this email and will be in contact with the new hire shortly thereafter.

A link to the New Hire Portal will be included in the candidate's offer letter so they will have access to important information before their arrival as new hires on their first day.

Remote Onboarding Guides have been created to assist with the orientation and onboarding processes. Please access the Remote Onboarding Guides for new hires and managers. 

Questions or concerns may be sent to askhr@virginia.edu.
