The Summa Health System Transitional Year residency provides an immersive, one year, hands on experience in the broad field of Internal Medicine for those intending to specialize.
We know our residents are thoughtful about what they want to accomplish in their one year residency. That's why we have developed a close collaboration with the Summa Internal Medicine Residency to be sure our residents learn to manage patients with many conditions themselves, with the same award winning educational supervison afforded to our medical residents. Our residents follow patients from ER to inpatient medicine to clinic and they learn to manage every decision themselves. Their management skills are earned and along the way they learn to consult, communicate, and interact with everyone in the interprofessional team.
Our educational strategy uses direct observation of your skills in a work based context. Supervising residents and faculty are trained to work alongside you and discuss your next step to acquire greater indepednence in perfroming all the skills needed to thrive in a clinical environment.
" I believe we offer Transitional Year residents a great work-based learning experience in preparation for their next stage of training.
In addition, our relational learning culture, fully-realized wellness strategy and access to teams from multiple specialties result in a confident and skilled physician."
