Welcome Medical Learners

Welcome/Bienvenue/Biindigen to SAH! We look forward to having you with us during your placement in our community and our hospital. 

Your safety and wellbeing is of upmost importance to us. These orientation modules serve as learning and education tools for important health and safety topics as well as local protocols. There are abundant risks and hazards in a hospital setting, therefore, it is important to be aware of your surroundings at all times.

When it comes to health and safety, if you are ever in doubt, stop and ask prior to proceeding. There are multiple hospital leaders, a manager on call, preceptor physicians, department leads, and the Chief of Staff who are available and willing to assist. Please bring forward any questions or concerns.
