Transition to Residency

‌Prior to graduation, fourth-year medical students are required to complete a one-week Transition to Residency course to facilitate the transition from medical school into specialized residency programs.  Students are organized into specialty tracts and engage in simulation-based procedural skills and team training, case-based problem solving sessions, and group didactic sessions to review strategies to enhance professional development and preparedness for residency training.
