Welcome to Vanderbilt University School of Medicine (VUSM)!  Each year we welcome new faculty members to VUSM by holding New Faculty Orientation during the Fall and Summer sessions.  The purpose of this orientation is to provide new faculty members with critical information about the school and the resources available for faculty members to support their academic career. 

Hosted by the Office of Faculty Affairs, New Faculty Orientation focuses on key items for new faculty members.  These key items include: (a) introduction to critical Vanderbilt information and resources, (b) guidance for the clinical and basic science tracks, and (c) socialization within and across VUSM departments.  As a group, new faculty members gather for sessions related to VUSOM history, compliance, research, risk management, and physician documentation regulations.

The New Faculty Orientation webpage provides timely details and resources for upcoming orientation sessions.  Dates and schedules will be provided on this webpage as they are made available each academic year.
