Medical Leader Onboarding


Onboarding is an ongoing process (not an event) of assimilation, focused on enculturation and socialization. Its purpose is to support individuals to build relationships and develop a sense of belonging within an organization. Orientation is a part of onboarding. It is an event (or events) whereby individuals are provided tools and information to support them in their specific roles.

Effective onboarding of new Island Health Medical Leaders enhances overall engagement and experience during their leadership tenure. The Medical Staff Engagement & Development team of Medical & Academic Affairs is actively developing an onboarding program for new leaders. Please review the project information sheet below for further information or contact Jennifer Furtado, Manager at
