New graduate residents will work 36 hours/week. This includes training days and extrinsic experiences designed to place residents in other departments that work closely with their home unit, giving a better understanding of the multidisciplinary collaboration of quality patient care.

Phase Two: begins once unit orientation is complete

Monthly Professional Development classes provide continued support, discussing issues such as delegation, time management, critical thinking, generation gap, cultural diversity, conflict resolution, etc. Close correspondence and support continues from the Resident Coordinator throughout this phase.
