Transitional Year

 Overview

 

The Transitional Year (TY) is a one-year postgraduate training program for graduates, following medical school, who have been matched into a Residency program which requires a pre-requisite year of broad-based training before specialty training. These include, but not limited to, Residency programs such as Anaesthesiology, Diagnostic Radiology, Family Medicine, Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Ophthalmology, Otorhinolaryngology, Orthopaedic Surgery and Pathology.

 

The TY program is designed to provide a well-balanced, structured clinical training in multiple disciplines as preparation for a Resident's chosen Residency. During your TY training, you will have the opportunity to rotate to various clinical specialties in one or more approved hospitals to gain exposure to a wide range of clinical cases through various patient care experiences.

 

The Curriculum  

TY rotations take place at SingHealth hospitals. These include Singapore General Hospital (SGH) and KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital (KKH), as well as our Major Participating Site, Changi General Hospital (CGH). With diverse patient populations, SingHealth offers you well-rounded training perspectives in your medical practice.
