What To Expect
On your first day, you will arrive at your assigned location at the time designated by your Clinical Instructor. Be on the lookout for your welcome letter with this information and more. You will meet with your Clinical Instructor to begin orienting to your assigned area and to discuss your VUMC clinical experience plans. You will be required to finish any computer training that was not completed prior to your start date.
If you were not able to get your ID badge or parking permit prior to your first day, there might be time at the end of your first day to pick up these items. Please work out a plan with your Clinical Instructor. A scheduled appointment is required for your ID Badge. You must have your badge prior to getting your parking permit.
