New Faculty Orientation Online

Welcome to Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine!  Below 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.  Each module requires approximately 8 minutes to review.   Resource links and presenter contact information are available in each module.  If you have additional questions, please feel free to email the presenters and/or their affiliated department.  Moreover, please stay tuned to the faculty listserv as social mixers and networking sessions for new faculty will be announced throughout the year.  We are glad you are a part of our team!
