Transitional Year

Our Mission

We are pleased to welcome you to the Nassau University Medical Center (NUMC) Transitional Year Residency Program. Our program is a one-year ACGME accredited residency, designed to provide a balanced and comprehensive foundation of clinical skills in preparation for your future categorical residency program. The program accepts ten residents per academic year.

The majority of your training will take place at Nassau University Medical Center working alongside the Emergency Medicine Residency. In order to provide a more diverse experience you will participate in regular scheduled didactic lectures, Journal Club, M&M, and Grand Rounds.

The core requirements consist of nine months of fundamental clinical skill rotations in surgery, internal medicine, family medicine, OB/GYN, emergency medicine, and pediatric emergency medicine. The remaining three rotations can be set up in elective rotations that will satisfy the incoming transitional resident’s educational needs and eventual residency/board certification requirements. During the rotations on all services, the transitional resident is treated the same as a categorical resident on that service. They actively participate in the evaluation and treatment decisions for all patients on the service.
