About our program
The Transitional Year residency program is a one-year, fully accredited, training program that provides a clinical base year essential for further training in advanced specialty residency programs. Our program is approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) for 10 residency positions and received Continued Accreditation in August 2019.
The transitional year program is jointly affiliated with the Departments of Internal Medicine and Family Medicine at Oak Hill Hospital. Anesthesiology applicants are encouraged to apply for the Transitional Year program. Although our Anesthesiology program is not a categorical program (a four year program), we are promoting a combined Transitional Year (one year program)/Anesthesiology (three year program) track. Residents who choose to train within our program seek to develop clinical knowledge and skills in a variety of disciplines before entering their chosen categorical or advanced program. Others may use the transitional year as a broad-based clinical year to help decide the field of medicine they would like to pursue.
Designed to provide a quality educational experience, our residents continue their residency training with a solid foundation of knowledge in the evaluation and treatment of hospitalized patients, as well as in the ambulatory setting. Residents will be instructed on fundamental clinical skills and diagnosing and managing a broad range of clinical cases through direct patient care.
Some highlights of our program includes a balanced clinical curriculum tailored to the individual resident that combines internal medicine, family medicine, and flexible elective time. Our program also offers a unique executive and administrative leadership rotation that exposes our residents to the organizational branch of healthcare. Upon completion of our program, residents are well-versed in a variety of areas, and prepared for their prospective specialty training.
Teaching tomorrow’s physicians today, in the art and science of medicine.
