Transitional Year Residency
Firelands Regional Medical Center offers a transitional year residency featuring a strong clinical base for any residency. The transitional year residents at Firelands Regional Medical Center are the foundation of the house staff and provide important mentoring and leadership roles for the students. The program includes both ambulatory and hospital based rotations, giving residents progressive independence in medical management and decision making. The hospital combines a strong didactic clinical medical education with a busy regional medical center to provide the resident with one of the strongest medical education experiences possible. Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) is integrated into the program through bi-monthly OMM workshops and an expectation that the OMM principles learned in the classroom are translated into patient care in the clinics and on the hospital floors.
The Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) has approved four slots for Firelands Regional Medical Center's transitional year residency.
