AHS Medical Staff Orientation-Calgary Zone
May 28 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
On behalf of Calgary Zone, Medical Affairs, we would like to invite you to our Medical Staff Orientation session. The day has been designed for all physicians who work within the Calgary Zone and hold probationary privileges.
The orientation is an opportunity to improve your clinical practice and to learn more about AHS as an organization; topics will include areas of quality and patient safety information, clinical informatics, zone and Medical Affairs information, along with other helpful tips to guide your way through your new position. This orientation will also introduce you to the medical leadership within the Calgary Zone and allow opportunity to ask specific questions. Additionally, for your convenience, a multi-program booth fair will be set up amidst the orientation to introduce you to some of the initiatives and opportunities within AHS and the Calgary Zone.
Once they’ve completed the full day orientation, physician/physician leaders will be able to:
Identify different teams within Alberta Health Services, Calgary Zone and understand how each team applies to their role as a physician.
