New Faculty Orientation
Welcome to New Faculty Orientation
Welcome to the VCU School of Medicine New Faculty Orientation web page designed to provide a "quick start" for all new full or part-time clinical, basic science and administrative faculty. We are pleased that you have selected VCU as a place to further expand and develop your professional career.
The New Faculty Orientation is conducted annually each fall. The goal is to enhance the effectiveness of faculty by introducing them to the mosaic of leaders, programs and resources to help support their career development, teaching, research and clinical care.
Also online at http://wp.vcu.edu/iteach/somnfo/ is a welcome message from Dr. Peter Buckley, Dean of the School of Medicine, and seven interactive modules that contain essential information for you to know as a recently hired faculty member.
