OAA Updates

  • New Faculty Applications!
  • MedOnboard is a tool to assist hiring departments with the onboarding process for incoming faculty. This application serves as the formal onboarding tool for faculty and facilitates communications between incoming faculty, hiring departments, and school/hospital functional units involved in onboarding. This tool should be used for Professoriate, Clinician Educator, and Instructor populations.
  • MedLeave is a tool assisting departments and faculty with requests and approvals for sabbaticals, professional development leaves (PDL), and unpaid leaves of absence (LWOS, LOA). Along with increased transparency around where requests sit within the approval process, the application also provides a leave accrual calculator (available to leave administrators and faculty) that determines the amount of time accrued for current and future leaves.
