New Employee Orientation


Welcome! As a new hire to MUSC, we would like to welcome you to what we hope will be a rewarding and rich experience. Human Resources Management offers a New Employee Orientation which includes a Benefits overview. The briefings are held in Harborview Office Tower, Room 910 at 9:00 a.m. on Monday mornings, or Tuesday if Monday is a holiday.  New employees should plan to check-in between 8:00 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. in the lobby to register for parking and have their picture taken for their ID badge. Employees may also submit a picture prior to orientation to streamline the check-in process(see information below).  Orientation will end no later than 1:00 p.m. and employees are encouraged to report to their department for the remainder of the day. The New Employee Orientation provides information about our institution, as well as resources that will contribute to your success at MUSC. An overview of the university’s mission, the components of MUSC University and other valuable information are also provided during the orientation.

The following resources are available to assist you in your introduction to our institution.
