Passive programming is a very effective way to educate residents and build community. In this section, you will find many passive programming ideas, primarily bulletin boards.

READ THIS FIRST: As with any program, it is important that you communicate with your supervisor to assure the bulletin board you are considering is appropriate for your community. What may have been used at one institution or on one floor may not be appropriate in your situation.
