Frequently Asked Questions

Is this online orientation for you?

The medical student online orientation is required for all postgraduate students and clinical clerks.

When can I log into the orientation?
  • Postgraduates will receive an email from Memorial University (MUN) containing their USER ID and PASSWORD. Students will need this information to log into the online orientation by May 25, 2015. The deadline to complete this orientation and return required documents is June 3, 2015.
  • Clinical clerks (Class 2017) will access the online orientation via MUN's Distance Education Platform, D2L, as they would for any other course. The Undergrad Medical Education Office will advise students when they may log onto the orientation. The deadline to complete this orientation is August 1, 2015.

Is the section entitled “Sign Up for Pay and Benefits” for you?

Yes, if you are a postgraduate student, you must sign up for pay and benefits in order to receive a pay cheque.

After logging into the module, look for the 'Pay & Benefits' tab on your left menu. All required documents and appropriate instructions are in this section. In order to receive payment for work starting on July 1, 2015, these documents must be completed and mailed before June 26, 2015 to:
Human Resource, Eastern Health
187 Kenmount Road, Suite 203
St. John's, NL A1B 3P9

Documents received after June 26, 2015 date will be processed for the following payday.

Is the Personal Health and Information Act (PHIA) training course for you?

Yes, legislation released in April 2011 requires Eastern Health staff, including postgraduate students and clinical clerks, to complete this course. You are not required to repeat this training if you have previously submitted your PHIA completion certificate to Eastern Health.

Is the “Oath/Affirmation of Confidentiality” for you?

Yes, Personal Health and Information Act legislation requires that all staff, including postgraduates, students and clinical clerks, sign an Oath/Affirmation of Confidentiality. Please bring photo identification to this session.

Orientations must be completed as required. Non–compliance with orientation requirements could potentially affect medical students’ clinical studies at Eastern Health.
