Curriculum

Hurley first-year residents Jahangir Khan MD and Oliver Atar MD - from Internal Medicine and Transitional Year programs, respectively - practice clinical skills in a Simulation Lab (October 2013). The training allows residents to achieve a higher level of performance before treating actual patients.

The transitional year residency program is well integrated with Hurley’s other graduate medical education programs. To provide optimal exposure to a variety of medical disciplines, the Transitional Year residency program includes inpatient, outpatient, emergency medicine and critical care rotations in internal medicine and pediatrics. In order to meet requirements of specialty residency training programs, a broad range of electives are also available to residents.

Transitional Year Residency Program Features

Residents are given the same responsibility as categorical residents (from training programs in pediatrics, internal medicine, emergency medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, combined medicine/pediatrics, diagnostic radiology and orthopaedic surgery), creating an academic and clinical environment that advances a resident’s clinical and professional education within the limits of experience and demonstrated skills.
