Residents are at the frontlines of teaching medical students. They need to know not only how to teach but the expectations of the clerkship as well. This PowerPoint is a template; you can add site-specific information to the relevant slides including clerkship length, director's name, learning objectives, etc. to orient residents to the clerkship.
