Transitional Year Overview
Our Transitional Year Program is a one-year internship providing preliminary education for applicants interested in residency programs that begin at more advanced PGY-2 levels such as Anesthesiology, Radiology, Ophthalmology, Dermatology, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, etc. The program is approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) to sponsor six to eight positions each year.
The objective of the Transitional Year program is to provide each resident a well-balanced program of graduate medical education in multiple clinical disciplines designed to facilitate each individual's choice of and preparation for a specific specialty. The Transitional Year is not meant to be a complete graduate education program in preparation for the practice of medicine.
