Transitional Year Residency Program

We are pleased to welcome you to the Wayne State University Transitional Year Residency Program website. Our program is a one-year ACGME accredited residency, designed to provide a well-balanced comprehensive foundation in multiple clinical disciplines in preparation for entrance into a categorical residency program. 

The majority of your training will take place at Ascension Providence Rochester Hospital working alongside the Family Medicine Residency. In order to provide a more diverse experience you will complete one month of Internal Medicine at the John D. Dingell VA Medical Center in Detroit. Our program offers a wealth of educational and clinical resources, with dedicated clinical faculty, in a nurturing wellness focused environment. You will participate in a hospital-based Quality Improvement project, Journal Club, M&M, Grand Rounds as well as regularly scheduled subspecialty didactic lectures, and bedside teaching rounds. The program allows residents the freedom to choose four elective rotations to build on personal academic interests in line with their upcoming categorical program. Our Transitional Year Residency supports categorical residencies including Dermatology, Anesthesiology, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and Radiation Oncology.
