New Employee Orientation Program

Gears and arrows

Welcome to UConn Health! Our New Employee Orientation provides a comprehensive introduction to what awaits you as our newest workforce member. This orientation introduces you to our academic health center's culture, values, history, services, resources, and benefits, including insurance and retirement programs in which eligible employees may enroll.


New Employee Orientation is a two-day virtual program that starts at 8 am each day. Day One is held on WebEx, an online meeting platform. Day Two is held on our Saba online learning center. Directions for Day Two training are provided on day one. New hires, who have cleared their onboarding, receive an email invite from Human Resources on the week of their scheduled orientation.
