Greetings Incoming Trainees!
The credentialing process is managed online through our training
program management software, New Innovations. Upon our receipt of your
signed contract, you will receive an email from our office with login
info and directions for completing this process. IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE
THIS INFORMATION, PLEASE ALERT US.
Your license will be issued in whatever name is listed on your social
security card. We are required to credential you in your legal name.
Your e-mail account, white coat, EMR profile, ID badge, etc. must all
reflect your legal name. We cannot accommodate nicknames, or substitute
middle names for first names, etc. If you plan to change your legal
name before you begin work (ie, marriage) please alert our Credentials
Coordinator so that we can assist you in completing the following
paperwork appropriately. The GME Office will pay for your Virginia
State Training License. Do not send payment.
Please be aware that, per policy, we credential physicians according to
the degree conferred by their medical school. For example, D.O. for
Doctor of Osteopathy, M.D., Doctor of Medicine, M.B.B.S., Bachelor of
Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery, etc. While all of these degrees use the
prefix “Dr.” the credentials you earned are the ones that must be used
for identification purposes. For example, we will not substitute “MD”
for a trainee who has earned an “MBBS” degree.
Basic Life Support Training
BLS training is required of all GME
trainees. Many programs also require additional advanced life support
certification--please verify your program's requirements with your
program coordinator. Because we cannot accommodate all incoming
trainees in courses here, you are strongly encouraged to obtain the
required training at your current institution. The GME Office will
reimburse the cost of any required training once you begin work; please
bring receipts from this training to orientation.
