Entering a residency program can be a daunting task but managing and seeing those residents through their educational journeys can be equally challenging for residency program directors and coordinators. Coupled with the task of educating residents on the specific rules and regulations of their individual programs, universal guidelines that apply to all programs need to be addressed as well. Unfortunately, sometimes those overarching rules and regulations, largely related to the ACGME, can get lost in the shuffle.

The Resident’s Orientation Handbook, Fourth Edition, allows program directors and coordinators to put those important, sometimes-overlooked guidelines right into the hands of their residents for reference throughout the program. The handbook’s information is universal to all ACGME-accredited residency programs, across all types of hospitals and specialties, providing tired residents with need-to-know information in a quick and convenient format.

This handbook will help ensure program directors and coordinators that their residents are aware of the guidelines they need to know and adhere to: clinical and educational work hours, milestone completion, HIPAA compliance, and much more. The book’s fourth edition also addresses new areas of focus, including resident well-being, CLER, and program evaluation committees.

This book will:

  • Help residency program directors and coordinators place vital information into the hands of residents right from the start of the program
  • Cover training guidelines that are universal to all training programs
  • Assist residents in keeping important ACGME and other guidelines top of mind throughout their residency
  • Outline new areas the ACGME is focusing on
