Employee Orientation

New employees must complete a two-day orientation, which introduces them to the Hospital and provides important information about working at Children’s Hospital. Orientation is held on the 1st floor of the Colket Translational Research Building from 8 a.m. until approximately 4:30 p.m.

Orientation is held at 3535 Market Street on the 16th floor from 8 a.m. until approximately 4:30 p.m. Breakfast and lunch will be served. If you choose to drive to orientation, be aware that we are unable to reimburse your parking expense.

Faculty participate in an onboarding process specifically designed to help acquaint them with the CHOP Research community and the processes required to transfer their research program. To help make this transition as smooth as possible, we ask all investigators to complete the CHOP Research Faculty Onboarding Questionnaire upon receiving an offer letter from the The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute.

For any questions, please contact your Human Resources recruiter or call 267-426-6633.
