There’s no question that incoming residents have a lot to learn to get completely up to speed, but that doesn’t mean you have to cover it all during orientation. Only present what your incoming residents need to know to be effective immediately. As you create the orientation schedule, scrutinize each activity, asking whether the information is essential for residents or whether you can cover it later without compromising patient care.
