A brief listing of the orientation steps is as follows: computer training, background check and drug test, pyxis training, online orientation modules, completion of clinical student forms and appointment with Human Resources to obtain ID badge and parking pass.

A step-by-step guide of the process may be accessed here: Clinical Rotation Requirements. This document serves as a checklist for completion of the steps in the order listed as well as containing links to the instruction documents for each step and the required forms.
