How to apply
Welcome from our Program Director
Welcome to our Transitional Year Residency Program at Blake Medical Center in beautiful Bradenton Florida. We are an ACGME-accredited one-year program with 13 positions available per year.
The Blake Medical Center Transitional Year Residency program’s mission is to develop the next generation of physicians and physician leaders. As a part of HCA Healthcare, we are driven by a single mission: Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.
This program is designed to offer residents a rewarding, educational environment where residents are provided individualized learning opportunities by faculty and staff who support and sustain one another throughout quality care delivery. Our faculty are committed to ensuring the residents' clinical experience and educational needs are fulfilled while expanding residents’ perspectives to be inclusive of cultures, values, and ideals.
The Transitional Year Residency Program at Blake Medical Center is an ACGME-accredited one-year program with 13 positions available per year.
Our first class matriculated in 2017 and we have been granted a maximum 10-year reaccreditation status on our most recent ACGME site visit.
The sponsoring program is the Internal Medicine Residency Program. ACGME requires that 28 weeks of a Transitional Year Resident training be devoted to a discipline that offers fundamental clinical skills, including emergency medicine, family practice, internal medicine, obstetrics/gynecology, pediatrics, or surgery.
We satisfy these requirements with the following rotations:
- Intensive Care Unit
- Emergency Department
- Ambulatory Clinic
- Internal Medicine
- Trauma (optional elective)
Residents also now have a two-week rotation with the Quality Department to help broaden their exposure to Quality Improvement, Research, and Administrative tasks as well.
The Transitional Year is designed to provide a comprehensive experience in general medicine, in both the inpatient and ambulatory settings. The residents are integrated into core rotations and electives with internal medicine categorical residents.
The program director will work directly with each resident to fulfill the requirements for a clinical base year in his or her chosen field.
Our program is designed to provide our residents with the educational experiences needed to prepare them for the next level of post-graduate medical education training. Our program, faculty, and hospital are all committed to providing a quality educational experience that will prepare our graduates for their future specialty residency programs.
