Transitional Year Residency Program

The Aurora Transitional Year Residency Program has been a critical stepping stone to specialty residencies and careers since 1969. This ACGME accredited program is designed to provide a broad medical educational experience and to facilitate the choice and preparation for future specialty training. Clinical preparatory training starts by applying basic principles to many unique hospital and program characteristics.

Although our transitional year residents enter into specialties including diagnostic radiology, anesthesiology, ophthalmology and others, they share many common educational needs. By focusing on these common needs, we prepare them for successful and rewarding careers as physicians, regardless of their specialties. We provide a large degree of curricular flexibility and individual choice to meet these goals.
