How does this relate to other orientation activities? These sessions complement existing PDC and departmental onboarding efforts. Faculty with clinical appointments should continue to work with their PDC Integration Coordinator on clinical onboarding activities. Faculty conducting research should also connect with the Duke Office of Research Initiatives to schedule a 1:1 researcher onboarding session.

Where: The sessions will be held via Zoom until further notice. After registering, you will receive a calendar invite with the Zoom link at least 48 hours prior to the session.  

Who should I contact with questions? Questions can be sent to Kyle Nunn in the School of Medicine Office for Faculty at kyle.nunn@duke.edu.
