As a large department spanning multiple hospitals and health systems, orientation to the Department of Emergency Medicine can seem complex. We’ve created this webpage to welcome new faculty and simplify the orientation process.
During orientation, faculty learn about IU School of Medicine, Eskenazi Health, IU Health and the Department of Emergency Medicine. We share our mission and vision, introduce our leadership and staff and partner with all new faculty to understand their clinical venues, schedules, benefits and compensation. Importantly, we also assign a faculty ‘buddy’—where all questions are good questions. New faculty also have orientation shifts where they work with an experienced colleague first to learn some of the local nuances.
