Medical Student Orientation Checklist
Orientation: Unless specified, orientation will be held on the first Monday of your rotation. Dr. Metcalf will meet with you in the EOB (Education Office Building) that morning for an hour-long orientation. You should be prepared to work a shift that day unless otherwise scheduled. It is important to have your paperwork turned in at least three to four weeks in advance to get your badge and pass-codes before your first day at Rady Children’s Emergency Care Center.
Computer Access Code/EPIC Access: Fax your completed GME, Confidentiality Agreement and Badge Request forms to Marian Toscano, GME Coordinator at fax 858-966-7477. Turnaround time to enter residents into the system is approximately three weeks, once we receive the forms.
