Transitional Year Medical Education Program

Thank You for your interest in Orange Regional Medical Center’s Transitional Year Internship Program! The mission of the Graduate and Undergraduate Medical Education Program at Orange Regional Medical Center is to prepare residents and students to be excellent physicians and well-developed individuals by educating them in the fundamental concepts, knowledge, and practical applications of skills taught by a team of dedicated medical professionals.

The goal at Orange Regional is to foster the development of clinical knowledge, professional skills, compassionate behavior, and a caring attitude. These attributes are required of high-quality osteopathic interns.

Transitional Year Didactics

We provide outstanding clinical experiences and didactic learning opportunities, combined with an excellent quality of life. Our flexible curriculum allows plenty of time for electives, giving you the chance to further explore areas that interest you.

The program trains eight interns each year and can be, depending on the interest of the intern, tailored to emphasize Internal Medicine, Emergency Medicine, General Surgery or other sub-specialties. The internship focuses on fundamentals of differential diagnosis and clinical problem solving. Interns master the techniques of history-taking and physical examination, gain expertise in the care of patients in a variety of inpatient and outpatient settings and to develop competence in procedural skills.

In addition, interns also will be expected to master techniques of structural examination and manipulative treatment. Structural exams will be reviewed by the attending physician and regular conferences will be held to review and discuss structural and palpatory diagnosis and manipulative treatment. Interns have the opportunity to participate in our OMT clinic and osteopathic manipulative medicine conference weekly.
