The Capital Health Transitional Year Residency Program is committed to providing comprehensive, quality care to improve and sustain the health status of the community while preparing our Transitional Year residents to succeed in their future professional and academic endeavors.
In order to accomplish the mission of our program, the program will seek to achieve the following goals:
- Provide a foundational experience in medicine; exposure to emergency medicine, intensive care, surgery, ambulatory medicine; and an individualized experience meeting each resident’s required curriculum components.
- Deliver a quality educational curriculum that provides an introduction to medical knowledge in various areas.
- Ensure diversity within the residency program—including realms of language and ethnicity as well as past experience and future career goals—in order to meet the health care needs of a similarly diverse patient population.
- Promote self-care behaviors in order to equip residents and faculty with a toolbox of resources for maintaining resilience and well-being throughout their career.
- Tailor the curriculum so residents develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes to be superior clinician scholars and role models of professionalism.
- Equip residents with skills for lifelong self-assessment and independent learning.
- Prepare residents to enter their next stage of training with a comprehensive skillset, including utilization of technology (telemedicine, EMR, POCUS) and engagement in multidisciplinary techniques (team-based care, population health, performance improvement, quality and patient safety).
- Develop an environment of inquiry by supporting scholarship and quality improvement activities for residents and faculty.
- Provide comprehensive support for residents in achieving their stated career goals in their chosen specialty and area of practice.
