Lightning Talk: Program Description Abstract

All Aboard! A Collaborative Orientation

Sunday, May 5
2:50 PM - 2:55 PM
Room: Columbus KL (East Tower, Ballroom/Gold Level)

Background : Due to increasing demands on surgical skill development, all incoming orthopaedic residents participate in a surgical skills boot camp which began June 2014. While this program is successful at providing introductory orthopaedic surgery skills, the length of other orientation programs was shortened, specifically, the medical library. Therefore, to increase the knowledge base to the medical library’s offerings, a personalized re-orientation session for residents will be introduced 8 to 10 months following the initial orientation. This allows the resident to seek for relevant and deeper questions as they begin to formulate research ideas, develop content for teaching and prepare for cases.


Description : When discussing new resource marketing strategies, the Library Task Force presented a follow up orientation for PGY1 residents. A resident task force member proposed the structure for the re-orientation session. This session is a collaborative effort with a librarian and a resident presenting. It including a pre-test on locating resources, an interactive lecture on services, academic resources, scholarly communication, tips from an experienced resident and a post-test. During this session, IT personnel will be on hand to troubleshoot problems, make sure the resident’s laptop is up to date, and facilitate requests.

Library staff worked with a resident task force member, a faculty member and the GME Curriculum and Evaluation Director to determine the best time to revisit library resources. Re-orientation sessions will take place for individual residents during a rotation halfway through their first year allowing time to get acclimated.


Conclusion : This second orientation will allow time to foster a closer relationship with the new residents.
We plan to implement this program over the coming months and will present findings at the conference.
