The mission of the Transitional Residency is to provide a broad based clinical experience and didactic curriculum that prepares the physician to confidently practice medicine as a flight surgeon, primary care physician, general medical officer, or enter a subsequent residency program. At the end of the yearlong residency program, the resident will become proficient in developing differential diagnoses and devising sound treatment plans, all while honing their communication skills with the patient as well as health care professionals. Upon the completion of the one year program, the resident will develop sufficient confidence to be able to function within the military medical system.
Resident learning will occur by 3 modes: Direct patient care, regularly scheduled clinical didactics coordinated through the family medicine program, and monthly educational sessions with the program director. Residents will complete 6 core rotations at David Grant Medical Center (DGMC), 2 rotations at UC Davis Medical Center, 1 research rotation performed within the first 2 months of the internship, and 4 elective rotations (generally performed at DGMC). Residents will be rotating through many departments and will be interacting with attending staff and senior residents.
