This chapter discusses the importance of induction programmes. The induction programme at the organizational level is an essential constituent of the employment process of every doctor. The programme can be used to set out the values of the employers' organization. The importance of a patient safety ethos must be a part of all induction programmes. It is also essential to audit this process to ensure the effectiveness of the induction process.
