Travel and Visitor Requests

Under the University of Pittsburgh's COVID-19 management policies, requests for all Pitt Pediatrics personnel to travel on behalf of the University must be pre-approved by the Chair's Office.  Additionally, personnel seeking to host a visitor at the University of Pittsburgh from another institution, company, or organization must seek pre-approval.

When the Pittsburgh (Oakland) campus is operating in the "Elevated" or "Guarded" risk postures, the School of Medicine has delegated travel authorizations to each department chairperson.  Under a "High" risk posture, requests are routed to the dean of the School of Medicine for review and approval.

Pitt Pediatrics-related travel requests are facilitated through DocuSign.  Once a form is completed by the requester and sent electronically to the Chair's Office by the DocuSign system, it will be reviewed and either approved or declined.  Final copies of the approval or denial will be automatically emailed to the requester and his or her administrative assistant (if originally identified) by the DocuSign system.

Outgoing Travel

Personnel seeking to travel domestically or internationally on behalf of the University on official business for a conference, event, or similar reason should follow this process.

Incoming Visitors

Pitt Pediatrics personnel seeking to host a visitor from an institution, company, or other entity outside the University of Pittsburgh and/or UPMC on campus for a Pitt Pediatrics-related meeting or event should follow this approval process.
