NOTE: All newly appointed South Pointe Hospital residents must attend two full weeks of GME Orientation at the end of June and prior to starting their training on July 1.  In addition, new residents are asked not to schedule any time off in July as there are several additional mandatory Orientation sessions scheduled throughout the month.  Missing any portion of GME Orientation may delay the trainee's start date.
