Each summer, medical school graduates start training at UF Health Shands hospitals and outpatient programs and UF Health Physicians primary care and specialty care medical practices. These new physicians are introduced to our organization with a series of informative sessions to help familiarize them with our clinical programs, processes and resources.
On July 1, 220 residents will participate in UF College of Medicine Housestaff Orientation, conducted by the COM Graduate Medical Education, or GME, Housestaff Affairs office. The office supports residents and fellows for three to seven years while they continue their training at UF Health.
At orientation, leaders welcome the housestaff and teach them about our patient safety and quality initiatives, clinical programs and resources. Housestaff also complete UF Health Hospitality & Service training, which reinforces standards of behavior that help ensure staff provide the best possible experience for patients, visitors and colleagues.
Please welcome new residents to your unit or team and help them become part of the UF Health family.
