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.

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.
