The Lakeland Regional Health Transitional Year Residency program is a one-year program providing residents with a well-rounded, personalized clinical training experience in multiple specialties. Graduates will develop clinical practices, professional skills, and individualized mentorship to prepare them to deliver outstanding, efficient medical care with compassion, integrity, and respect in whichever discipline they choose.
As one of the largest hospitals in Florida (864 beds) in a rapidly growing diverse population, the patient and pathology variety is unmatched. Our board-certified faculty are equally as diverse, and eager to teach and mentor in more than 35+ specialties. As a newly formed academic program, residents will receive direct hands-on experiences and access to a plethora of research opportunities without much competition from other trainees. We’re committed to providing a personalized experience for each TY resident both clinically, professionally, and personally.
