This Online Orientation is designed to help incoming residents and fellows adjust more quickly and easily to learning and practice within The Brooklyn Hospital Center (TBHC).
The Online Orientation for Incoming House Staff has been designed based on the industry best practices and the educational needs of The Brooklyn Hospital Center.
A number of ECFMG materials and resources have been leveraged to develop this program that includes the Resource Center and Online Modules* accessible from www.tbh.org.
Online learning modules are housed on TBHC Online Learning Center and include both reading content and student assessments. (Please note, you may need to use your temporary username and password, based on your first initial, last name and "2011". For example, John Doe's temporary username and password would be jdoe2011.)

Lesson 1: What's in a Name?

Lesson 3: The Healthcare Team
