Program overview

The Transitional Year Residency Program at HCA Florida Brandon Hospital is an ACGME accredited one-year training program with 11 PGY1 residents. The sponsoring programs are internal medicine residency programs.

ACGME requires that 24 weeks of a Transitional Year Resident training be devoted to a discipline that offers fundamental clinical skills, including emergency medicine, family practice, internal medicine, obstetrics/gynecology, pediatrics, or surgery.

We satisfy these requirements with the following rotations: ICU, emergency department, family medicine and internal medicine.

The Transitional Year consists of 13 blocks and is designed to provide a comprehensive experience in general medicine, in both the inpatient and ambulatory settings. The residents are integrated into core rotations and electives with other residents.

The program director will work directly with each resident to fulfill the requirements for a clinical base year in his or her chosen field. This program is designed to provide our residents with the educational experiences needed to prepare them for the next level of postgraduate medical education training.
