The MedStar Georgetown University Hospital/Inova Fairfax
Hospital Transitional Residency Program provides
clinical training in general medicine, pediatrics and emergency
medicine to physicians entering subspecialty training programs
including ophthalmology, radiology, neurology and others.
The transitional program integrates participants into current
residency programs. A varied educational experience is provided
to each resident. Residents in the program have the opportunity
to acquire knowledge and skills related to the medical diagnosis
and management of adult and pediatric patients and to participate
in the care of critically ill patients.
Emphasis is placed on understanding the pathologic and
physiologic mechanisms of disease, and on the principles of
diagnosis and treatment. Residents in the program are responsible
for both diagnostic and therapeutic management, and are expected
to perform and participate in the same manner as residents at a
similar experience level in currently existing teaching services.
