The ISD and Epic@UNC Training Team follows the 2 week orientation cycle that most UNC Health Care System organizations use.  

  • If a Monday holiday falls on the Monday of your organization's orientation (which shifts the HR orientation to Tuesday), then most classes will shift accordingly.  These adjustments are reflected in the SumTotal LMS class schedule. There are NO orientations shifted by a holiday in 2019.  
  • The other Monday holidays are during the 2nd week of orientation, so only the 2nd week of classes are impacted and subsequently shifted.  
  • With Monday holidays, physician-related classes do not shift and still begin with Ambulatory Provider classes on Tuesday per our normal schedule.   
  • For holidays that fall on any other day of the week, all classes, including physician-level classes, are shifted the same number of days as the holiday provides.  Again, this is already reflected in the SumTotal LMS class schedule.
