Transitional Year

Welcome From the Program Director

Image: InternshipWe welcome you to the Transitional Year Program at Stony Brook Southampton Hospital. We strive to create medical leaders committed to life-long learning and the ideals of social medicine. We employ the principles of evidence-based medicine and translate this into providing excellent medical care to our patients. We emphasize the role of the physician as leader and put a premium on taking a comprehensive approach to the care of our patients. Throughout the year you will have many opportunities to hone your knowledge and skills to provide quality, comprehensive medical care to your patients. You will accomplish this while working in a supportive, collaborative environment with dedicated faculty and support.

Each year the Transitional Year class is comprised of highly competitive, enthusiastic, and caring residents. We successfully train residents during this one year rigorous program who then go on to advanced training in any number of specialties.

We are delighted that you are interested in our program. We welcome you to learn more about us and to discover how we can set you up for success in your career.

Wishing you the best,
