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.
