New Faculty Onboarding Overview

KU School of Medicine Murphy building

Arrive. Achieve. Advance.

We are glad you are part of the University of Kansas School of Medicine. When the department chair receives your signed offer letter, you are officially a faculty member. Your appointment may also include affiliation with:

  • The University of Kansas Hospital
  • University of Kansas Physicians Inc. (UKP)
  • University of Kansas Research Institute (RI)
  • University of Kansas

This On-Boarding Process guides you through requirements and tasks necessary before you can see patients or begin your research. This includes routine human resource steps and orientation. Some departments will have additional, specialty related, steps.

Your On-Boarding Ambassador, a non-faculty member appointed by your department, is your resource or "go-to person" for administrative and basic orientation to work questions: logistical issues, facility tours, and introduction to people in the department.
