During the first five weeks of the residency, residents will become acclimated to the hospital and the pharmacy department.  The goal of the orientation period is to prepare the resident for staffing and to provide an understanding of workflow in regard to Manager on Call duties.  Residents will rotate through all areas of the pharmacy department and will be trained by pharmacists and technicians in order to gain a complete view of pharmacy operations.
