Big Sib Program
The Big Sib Program
As you all know, many interns experience challenges in their new roles as physicians. Orientation and onboarding are typically delivered by faculty/administration and do not focus on the intern’s daily duties from near-peer perspectives. A couple of years ago, the idea of creating a near-peer boot camp for our incoming interns was born. The program has had unprecedented success and was received well by both incoming interns and seniors. Thankfully we now have multiple experiences to learn from and more time to come up with an improved structure.
