New Employee Orientation

Welcome to MUSC!  Human Resources Management offers a New Employee Orientation which includes an overview of insurance and retirement benefits. Orientation is 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, mission and other resources that will contribute to your success at MUSC.
