Integrating rotations in Internal Medicine, General Surgery, Emergency Medicine, Pediatrics, Radiology and elective time, the Transitional program is sponsored by Yale New Haven Hospital's Departments of Medicine and Radiology and is affiliated with Yale School of Medicine. Assignments are broken into blocks, with residents assuming the same responsibilities as Categorical residents on respective services, including rotations in critical care units and specific medical and surgical services. You may also arrange electives in many of the hospital's available clinical teaching services, and orient them toward acute or ambulatory care. Among the choices are anesthesiology, dermatology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, infectious diseases, nephrology, neurology, ophthalmology, podiatry, radiation oncology, radiology and more.
During every rotation, you will be an integral member of the patient care team and encouraged to fully participate in departmental conferences and teaching activities. Full-time faculty and senior house officers provide individual supervision and teaching. Because we want you to get the most out of your residency experience, our full-time faculty is devoted solely to resident teaching - whether at a patient's bedside or as a mentor for a reading group.
Resident performance is evaluated monthly by departmental faculty, and the program director meets quarterly with individual trainees - assuring that you receive the counseling and tailored curriculum needed to best meet your career and training goals.
