The Transitional Year at Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak consists of 12 PGY-1 positions.
The positions are designated to students accepted into integrated Beaumont residencies in
- diagnostic radiology (6)
- radiation oncology (3)
- ophthalmology (3)
We do not offer any unlinked positions for the Transitional Year alone.
Applicants should apply directly to the categorical program of interest.
The objective of a Transitional Year is to provide a well-balanced program of graduate medical education in multiple clinical disciplines designed to facilitate the choice of and preparation for a specific specialty, including specialties requiring a
year of fundamental clinical education as a prerequisite. Transitional year programs also provide clinical education for those medical school graduates planning to serve in public health organizations or on active duty in the military as general medical
officers or primary flight/undersea medicine physicians, or those who desire or need to acquire at least one year of fundamental clinical education before entering administrative medicine or non-clinical research.
The specific goals, methods for instruction, and evaluation tools for each competency are based on the specific rotations the residents are scheduled to attend. The Transitional year residents are PGY-1 residents and have the same requirements as any other PGY-1 resident within the specialty they are rotating on, and should be treated the same as any categorical resident, and will follow the same goals, objectives and responsibilities as any of them. Transitional year residents will follow the same up-to-date ACGME common program requirements and duty hour restrictions.
