Credentialed Provider Orientation

We would like to welcome you to Upstate University Hospital. To provide you with consistent information in an easily accessible format before you arrive to take care of our patients, we've set up an online orientation. You can return here to reference these materials at any time.

To complete this orientation, please review the following set of orientation videos, register for your New Provider Welcome, and submit the electronic attestation at the bottom of the page. Adobe PDF documents are available for many presentations for your reference.

Watching all of the videos should take slightly over an hour; however, they can be watched separately at your convenience.
