Flexibility

Flexibility is a key facet of our program. The year provides balanced training in a variety of medical specialties that ensures our graduates gain a wealth of experience in those areas. Residents have the ability to choose appropriate electives that are aligned with ACGME guidelines.

Academics

The Transitional Year Program at Presence Saint Joseph Hospital is fully accredited by Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and received five-year accreditation during the last site visit in 2012. The training program curriculum and evaluation system is based on the six core competencies required by the ACGME: Medical Knowledge, Patient Care, Professionalism, Interpersonal and Communication Skills, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement, and Systems-Based Practice. ACGME educational milestones are incorporated into the evaluations.

The board of a resident's chosen specialty may accept our training as a whole or in part. Applicants should consult with their prospective specialty program directors regarding the extent to which, and the condition by which they will endorse our program.

Broad-based Experience

The program is designed to provide one year of broad based clinical experience for individuals graduating from medical school. Presence Saint Joseph Hospital's Transitional Year Program is an excellent choice for physicians who have not yet made a career choice/specialty selection and also for those that have chosen a specialty that requires one of clinical and surgical education prior to admission.
