New Resident’s Welcome

Welcome to NuHealth

Congratulations on your acceptance into an internship, residency or fellowship program at Nassau University Medical Center. We are looking forward to your joining our staff. Each of you will be an important member of the health care delivery team.

There are several essential steps in joining the graduate medical education program, e.g., completing paperwork, submitting documents and reviewing orientation training materials. We realize that some of the paperwork is redundant, but because of institutional and legal regulations, we do require you to complete all of the enclosed. Doing so in an accurate and timely manner will ensure that you can begin your program on July 1st, of the current academic year and receive your first paycheck on time.

We’re looking forward to seeing you, and welcoming you to our institution. Please do not hesitate to contact us:

OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Be sure to have the following documents available when you attend the orientation.

  1. An original social security card
  2. Spouse’s social security number (if applicable)
  3. Visa information and authorization to train in USA
  4. Dependents’ exact birth dates
  5. Beneficiaries’ exact birth dates and addresses
  6. *Children’s birth certificates
  7. *Marriage certificate
  8. Children’s social security numbers.

Visa documentation must be included for all foreign residents. Lack of valid immigration documentation by July 1 will at the very least delay both your paycheck and your employment start date. If you do not yet have a social security number, please leave blank.

*Documents must be translated in English. These items are essential to enroll in health, dental and optical insurance plans and, most important, to receive a paycheck.

Sincerely,
