What do I need to turn in when I complete Orientation?

Your orientation checklist and your clinic specific orientation checklist (if you have one) should be turned in the Ambulatory Education by making a copy for yourself and sending the original to Mail Code 9305 for HC clinics and Mail Code 1035 for MF checklists.  We are in the process of combining this and having one checklist across UW Health for each RN, MA and Scheduler.

When is the orientation checklist due?

All checklists for MF and HC are due 3 months from the date of hire or transfer.

Why do I need to do a new orientation checklist when I transfer to a different clinic?

All specialty and primary care clinics have different workflows, different skills and other information that needs to be reviewed in your new setting.

How can I get a copy of the checklist for my area?

See the Orientation page.

Where do I find information about CEUs for medical assistants?

See the Educational Opportunities page.

Where do I find approved delegation protocols on U- Connect?

Ambulatory Delegation Protocols can be found in the Clinical Hub under CCKM, Delegation/Practice Protocols.

Does CCKM (Center for Clinical Knowledge Management) offer other resources that would be helpful for clinical staff?

Yes. The UW Health Clinical Tool Search section of U-Connect offers Clinical Practice Guidelines, Patient Assessment Tools, Preventative Health Care and Health Maintenance resources and more.
