Will I be able to go back to my old job if OE doesn't work out?

No guarantees exist for any of us in our current positions nor will they exist in any new OE related organizations. Transitioning from your current job to a new job will most likely follow the same procedures that are currently in place and guided by UCSF policy.

The expectation is that any new positions in OE will not only be fully supported but also every effort will be made to ensure success. Joining a new organization and being one who is instrumental in a new way to work can be very exciting but also very challenging. One should make the transition to an OE position with the expectation that the commitment is long term.
