In addition to organizing orientation, coordinators should meet with new residents and discuss the day-to-day management expectations of the program, including logging case and patient encounter information, credentialing activities, and using online evaluation and scheduling tools.

Depending on institution and state requirements, you may also choose to cover the following topics during orientation:

  • Visa processes
  • State licensing requirements
  • Joint Commission requirements
  • Advance Trauma Life Support (ATLS) for surgical training programs


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