The Indiana University School of Medicine Transitional Year Residency program at Methodist Hospital is a one-year program that serves as the clinical base year prior to advanced residencies in Anesthesiology, Dermatology, Diagnostic or Interventional Radiology, Neurology, Ophthalmology, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, or Radiation Oncology.
Based at IU Health Methodist Hospital and a part of IU Health’s Academic Health Center in downtown Indianapolis, the IU School of Medicine Transitional Year residency has maintained ACGME accreditation since 1983 and a partnership with Methodist Hospital since 1908. Residents in this program come from many different medical schools throughout the United States and become specialists in many different fields.
The program’s educational focus is to teach future subspecialists foundational skills in medicine and to develop healthcare leaders who are well-prepared to enter advanced residency training. Successful applicants value the strong clinical foundation and emphasis on individual resident development provided by the Transitional Year.
