Welcome to the Transitional Year Residency Program at Ascension Providence Hospitals!
Our residents rotate in our Southfield and Novi campuses, both of which represent a diversity of faculty and patients from urban, suburban, and rural demographics. The Southfield site is a 395-bed hospital and the Novi site is a 259-bed hospital. These serve as base hospital for rotating residents at Michigan State University College of Human Medicine and Michigan State College of Osteopathic Medicine.
Our program offers an intellectually stimulating, interactive, and broad clinical experience that provides a solid foundation for further medical training. The experience of our faculty allows us to offer our residents the knowledge and skills essential to the practice of medicine, both generally and in your desired specialty. In addition, the exceptional diversity of southeast Michigan also affords our residents key strengths during the course of their transitional year, as they will gain experience treating patients from the majority of demographics in the United States. We strive to teach our residents to excel in other areas of medicine as well, including ethics, bedside manner, and clinical research. Personal time and overall wellness are important to maintaining a sense of balance as a first-year resident. To that end, all ACGME core competencies are incorporated into the curriculum, education, and outcome evaluations.
Our program has produced outstanding residents that have gone on to succeed in their desired programs and in their future career endeavors. Please contact us with any questions. We hope to welcome you soon!
