Incoming Residents and Fellows

Hawaii Residency Programs conducts an annual orientation for all incoming and continuing resident and fellow employees in late June. This orientation is separate from the orientations conducted by each residency or fellowship program. Attendance is mandatory to meet employment and compliance requirements.

The HRP orientation date, time and location will be emailed to you in early June. Please contact the HRP Executive Administrator or your Program Administrator as soon as possible if you have a scheduling conflict as it is important to attend the orientation in its entirety.

Attendance at the orientation is considered a work day and will be compensated as such. Accordingly, please dress in appropriate work attire.

All incoming residents and fellows will be provided a checklist of items and tasks to be completed via New Innovations prior to hire date. Some items require documentation to be uploaded back to New Innovations’ secure site or brought to a scheduled Program Orientation session. Check with your Program Administrator for additional questions.

Positive results for alcohol or inappropriate drug use or failure to comply with stated procedures, may result in residency/fellowship employment termination. A background check will be conducted prior to commencing employment.
