The information programs and/or institutions send to incoming residents prior to orientation varies, but it can include the following:

  • Contract
  • Employment paperwork, including W-2 and other forms for ID badges, parking, health insurance, etc.
  • Medical and immunization information—typically, this goes to the person within the hospital responsible for resident health, but it is one less piece of paper to worry about during orientation
  • Licenses, if applicable
  • Housing information
  • Timeline of activities for institutional and department orientations


This week’s question and answer are from The Residency Coordinator’s Handbook, Second Edition by Ruth Nawotniak, MS, C-TAGME.
