    Orientation is a vital step in the onboarding process for all residents here at Henry Ford Macomb and therefore, is a requirement before residency can begin. Orientation dates begin mid-June and go until the start of residency. If offered a position in our program, attendance to all orientation dates is required, no exceptions will be made to this so please plan accordingly. Failure to appear for residency orientation is considered a NRMP Match violation and could have serious consequences. Also, pre-employment screenings, ACLS and BLS courses are also required attendance.
