Transitional Year Program
Transitional Year Program with ProMedica Monroe Regional Hospital
ProMedica Monroe Regional Hospital (PMRH) is proud to offer an ACGME-approved Transitional Year program. Our program accepts six residents per year. Our residency is intended for physicians seeking preparation for further training in categorical residency programs, or for administrative or research positions that only require one year of clinical training.
Candidates seeking a one-year GME position for a variety of other reasons are also welcome to apply. PMRH offers this program in conjunction with our ACGME-accredited Family Medicine and Emergency Medicine residencies. Our 13-block curriculum includes exposure to inpatient and emergency medicine, along with ICU, surgery and an outpatient continuity experience. We also offer three blocks of elective time.
The Transitional Year program will
deliver a high-quality, broad-based education for physicians intending to
pursue categorical residency training after successful completion of the program.
In addition, we welcome learners who desire a one-year GME preparation for
other practice opportunities. The Transitional Year program at PMRH is operated
in accordance with the Common and Program Requirements for Graduate Medical
Education in the Transitional Year as defined by the ACGME. The program focuses
on resident training and exposure in the Fundamental Clinical Skills (FCS)
specialties of Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine, General Surgery, Internal
Medicine, OB/GYN and Pediatrics. In these rotations, residents are expected to
demonstrate proficiency in patient evaluation and assessment. Our overarching
goal is to train residents with the competence and compassion necessary for
success in a categorical residency program. We expect our graduates to be able
to apply their clinical and psychosocial knowledge to further the care of their
patients. Successful completion of a Transitional Year program prepares
well-rounded physicians to succeed with further training in today’s health care
Transitional Year residents are exposed to the didactic curricula both the Family Medicine and Emergency Medicine residencies during their year at PMRH. Six months are spent assigned to each didactic course, both of which are held on Wednesday for half-day sessions. By utilizing the strengths of both categorical programs, residents are exposed to a broad array of didactic topics.
