Welcome to MUSC Medical Center

On behalf of the Human Resources Department, we would like to welcome you to the MUSC Medical Center, we are very excited to have you join us as we “Change What’s Possible” in the healthcare industry.

Please note that you will not receive information regarding orientation until you have cleared all on-boarding requirements (health screening, background check, etc.). Due to federal and state recommendations to prevent the spread of COVID-19, MUSC Human Resources has moved New Care Team Member Orientation to a virtual platform. This means you will not be attending an in-person training nor check-in at HR for the organizational orientation.
As you start the MUSC onboarding process, you must complete the following steps (all of which will also be communicated by email with your onboarding assistant):

  1. Accept your offer letter and complete the onboarding form located in the Employee Portal.
  2. Complete the Time Sensitive Background Check using the information provided in the email from your Onboarding Specialist.
  3. Clear Employee Health by attending your scheduled appointment and providing the required documentation, please review your appointment email for more information (this will be sent once your appointment has been scheduled).
  4. Submit a picture for your Badge ID, see below for instructions.
  5. Attend the online New Care Team Member Orientation (please see the Orientation section further down for more information) and required training.

The I-9 and W-4 forms must be submitted before your first day. The I-9 forms are required by federal law to be turned in by your start date along with the acceptable documents. You will receive the links to upload these in your welcome email once you are cleared for orientation.

Submitting a Badge Picture

Employees must submit a photograph to MUSC Department of Public Safety prior to orientation. The photo must meet the following requirements for approval and be submitted no later than 10am on the Thursday before the scheduled orientation:

  • Color photo.
  • Background must be a solid color, preferably of a lighter shade.
  • Must be a frontal view, cropped from the shoulders up to include the full head. No side views.
  • No other person or objects in the photo (eyeglasses are acceptable, no sunglasses or hats).
  • Format can be BMP, JPG, or PNG. A photo taken with a smart phone and emailed from the phone will meet the required format (please choose "actual" or "original" for message size if prompted).

Please email the photograph to psaccess@musc.edu and include your full legal name, department name, and anticipated orientation date. (For example: Jane Mary Doe, Department of Medicine, attending orientation on 9/21/15.)

If your picture does not meet the above guidelines, you will receive an email from Public Safety requesting a new picture. If your picture does meet the requirements, you will not receive any communication from Public Safety and your badge will be at orientation.

Failure to do submit this by the Thursday before your orientation will result in no badge being printed, and a likely delay in the printing once an acceptable picture has been submitted.


Day 1 of orientation provides information about the institution, practices, and culture while Day 2, for benefits eligible employees, will provide an overview of employee insurance and retirement benefits. Both will be held virtually.
