Overview of term requirements, including assessment
Overview of education requirements, including completion of mandatory skills training
Provision of relevant documents including a term description for the commencement term, and a copy of the ROVER (rolling handover) document, in addition to other important information
Please refer to the individual hospital site sections for further information about the Orientation programs.
