About The Program
The goal of the Transitional Year Residency program at NGMC is to help create a solid foundation during the intern year that will train physicians who will become deeply compassionate, high quality, highly reliable, cost conscious physicians who practice with a deep sense that they impact life at its most sacred moments.
What makes a transitional year program different?
Unlike a preliminary year which is typically done in one area (generally either internal medicine, surgery or pediatrics) a transitional year includes experiences in a variety of different fields including but not limited to internal medicine, emergency medicine, surgery, critical care, health system leadership, patient safety quality/research and clinical skills, and outpatient primary care. The goal is to allow for a broad-based training while at the same time maximizing flexibility to meet individual personal and professional interests.Welcome from the Program Director
