Transitional Year

Kaweah Delta Health Care District (KDHCD) will be welcoming the charter class of its newly accredited Transitional Year (TY) Residency Program in the 2015-2016 academic year.  We will begin interview season for our first class in the fall of 2014.    

The TY Residency is a one-year program that offers 12 PGY1 positions through the National Resident Matching Program.  It is accredited by the ACGME and is designed to prepare any resident for the next stage of their training by providing a broad-based clinical experience.  The Transitional Year residents at KDHCD will frequently rotate with residents from our other accredited programs in Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine and Psychiatry.    

The appointed Program Director, Dr. Michael Stanley, is an experienced Emergency Medicine academician, and as such, the experience of the TY residents at this program will be solidly founded in the fundamental clinical skills of the extensive field of Emergency Medicine.  In addition, the curriculum offers over 25 elective rotations to help customize the training received in preparation for a multitude of specialties.  All TY rotations are to be completed at Kaweah Delta Health Care District sites or local ambulatory clinics.    

Our sunny California location, combined with our experienced and dedicated faculty at a busy community hospital, makes Kaweah Delta’s TY program an attractive and competitive choice.    

We encourage qualified applicants to apply!
