New Resident/Fellow Orientation

Education Session Information for Incoming Residents

June 26-30, 2023

Each education session will have a small amount of pre-work to be reviewed the night before the session in preparation for the morning’s discussions.

You can find the pre-work here.

Education sessions will be held Tuesday through Friday from 8:00 am – 9:00 am. These sessions have been created to not only allow for learning but also to encourage you to get to know your colleagues. Two links for each day are listed on your individual schedule and will remain the same for the duration of the week. One link is for a large group session with all 200 new incoming residents, and one is for a smaller group with approximately 18 residents from a variety of specialties. You are expected to attend all sessions.

When logging into the Zoom discussion groups each day, please use these best practices:

  1. Attend these Zoom sessions via a desk top or laptop, as it allows for optimal viewing of participants and materials
  2. Click on the specific Zoom link for each session that is included on your individual schedule, in the order of appearance
  3. Use your full name and program when signing in, use the “Rename” feature in zoom if needed by right-clicking on your picture
  4. Enable your device camera and participate via video
  5. Mute yourself on entry, then be prepared to unmute throughout the session and contribute to discussions

GME leaders and faculty look forward to engaging with you throughout the week!
