About Our Program
The Transitional Year Residency Program is designed to provide a comprehensive educational experience in an integrated health care delivery system. The residency endorses a team approach to patient care and progressive levels of independent decision making in order to prepare interns for their future residency program training.
The program promotes and supports shared responsibility by both residents and attending staff in a collegial and intellectually stimulating environment that imparts knowledge and skills in the areas of patient care, research, community service and leadership. The program works collaboratively with physician practices and hospital clinical services.
