  • Editor’s Note

    Dear readers,

    Have you already had your second CLER visit? How was it compared to your first visit? I’d love to hear from you for a story I’m working on for Residency Program Alert. Even if you haven’t had your second visit yet, how are you preparing differently for it? Please email me if you’re interested in sharing your experience with our readers.

    And speaking of CLER, for those of you that still need help preparing for your visit, we’ll be rebroadcasting our webcast, Don’t Fear the CLER, on Thursday, May 7 at 1 PM ET. Tune in to hear presenter Vicki Hamm, C-TAGME, discuss the essential steps needed to prepare your staff for a CLER visit.

    Thanks for reading!
