Transitional Year Residency: Rotation Schedule and Descriptions

About Our Rotations

Within each discipline, Transitional Year residents join their categorical peers for rotations and didactics. Residents at HCMC oversee all aspects of patient care, quickly obtaining progressive responsibility and decision-making roles as their clinical and leadership skills advance. Night float is required on some rotations.
