NOTICE (02/27/14): Occupational Health Operation Hours Change
Occupational Health (OH) will be closed Monday, March 3rd and Tuesday, March 4th due to the implementation of a new database. Effective today, OH will not be placing 1st or 2nd step TB tests until Wednesday 3/5/14 due to the closure. Also of great note, OH will no longer be offering their walk-in hours on Wednesdays. Employees and volunteers will need to complete a series of "surveys" in order to be seen. This will be able to be done on any computer that is web based. The new process for RAVS to approve volunteers to be seen by OH is still be determined, more information will be forthcoming. In the meantime, you can have your volunteer contact Occupational Health via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) to schedule an appointment – please cc our program's box to ensure OH knows we approve of this volunteer seeking their services.

NOTICE (12/2/13): Having Trouble Extending Your Volunteer's Computer Access?If you did not use the CARS system to submit your volunteer's original computer access request, you will need to set up a profile for them before you can submit an extension request. How do you set up a profile for them in CARS? After you login, and select "Request Access," you will need to select a green link that says "Create a Contractor/Vendor/Temp Account." That link will open up a new browser window, asking you for basic information about your volunteer to create a profile. After you have submitted this information you can close this browser window, go back to the CARS system and then "Search" for your volunteer – they will now be found in the system, in which you can request to extend their access.
NOTICE (5/10/13): Guide to On-boarding Shadows & Visitors Available
We heard you! By popular demand, RAVS has put together a guide on navigating the on-boarding process for visitors - both for visitors who are at OHSU less than 30 days, and those who are here longer than 30 days. This guide can be found under "Best Practices and Recognition" website under "Miscellaneous Resources." This guide is meant to be an additional resource, and does not take place of the formal OHSU Visiting Scientists and Other Affiliates Policy.
