Welcome from our program director
The Transitional Year residency at LewisGale Medical Center is characterized by a broad range of supervised inpatient and outpatient clinical experiences with a patient population that has a wide spectrum of health concerns.
The training year also provides exposure to core disciplines as well as the specialty. Education is provided in medical / surgical experiences while incorporating formal and informal methodology.
Each rotation has scope, volume, and variety to allow trainees to meet standards and program objectives.
The LewisGale Medical Center Transitional Year residents will receive full access to all areas of the inpatient facilities and will be supervised 24-hours daily, 7 days per week by board certified physicians within fully staffed units. Residents will receive a robust clinical and education training experience through participation in providing care to a diverse patient population with ranging acuities and annual volumes averaging over 70,000 each academic year.
The Transitional Year residency program will join four additional ACGME-accredited residency programs based at LewisGale Medical Center: Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, Emergency Medicine, and Psychiatry. The diversity of learners across multiple medical specialties allows residents the ability to co-teach, practice interdisciplinary learning, and collaborate to improve and innovate quality and processes within LewisGale Medical Center.
All members of the LewisGale Medical Center medical and ancillary staff, administration, and education offices fully support and will ensure proper oversight of resident clinical and educational activities.
