New Employee Orientation

Welcome to MUSC!  You have joined the team that is Changing What's Possible in health care.

Following is a list of what you need to do to complete your onboarding:

  • The first step on your MUSC journey is to complete the required online onboarding tasks.
  • Once you have received your clearance from Employee Health Services, please print and complete the Form I-9 (PDF) (Instructions to complete the Form I-9). You will need to bring these forms with you to Human Resources after you receive your clearance from Employee Health Services.
  • You may be asked to complete additional forms based on your new position. You will need to bring identification found on the list of acceptable documents (PDF) for the Form I-9 and Department of Homeland Security E-Verify program.
  • We also ask that you bring a copy of your social security card to verify the number with the Social Security Administration. This ensures proper reporting of your wages.
  • International employees are required to provide their Visa and any supporting documentation (I-797, I-94, etc). For visa inquiries, please call the Office of International Support at 843-792-7083 or the Department of Human Resources Management at 843-792-2237.

The following resources are available to assist you with an introduction to our institution.
