Hi All!

Hope you are well! Many of you will soon see a new group of Residents perusing the hospital and so I’ve assembled a “Top 5” based on the literature and research on Orientation to new settings. This one-pager is designed to emphasize the key things to focus on during the first 6 months.
Please feel free to download, use, or suggest areas for improvement.
