New Residents

If you are a new resident in a Jackson Graduate Medical Education Program, you should follow the instructions provided in New Innovations. Note: If you are applying from out of state and require fingerprinting, please check the New Innovations portal for you SOI/SON number and provide it at your VA fingerprint appointment. 

Returning Residents

New VA ID Badge (Non-PIV Card) Requirement
