Transitional Year Residency Program

Jason Hatcher

Thank you for your interest in the Transitional Year residency at Coliseum Medical Centers! We look forward to meeting you and sharing all that our program has to offer.

Our inaugural class graduated in June of 2019. During our first year, we were able to build on our solid foundation of core and elective rotations while expanding the elective options available to Transitional Year residents. Macon has a strong medical community that will prepare you for the next phase of your medical career.

Our Transitional Year residency program accepts 13 residents each academic year for one year of post-graduate training to prepare them for subsequent residencies in other specialties. The Transitional Year curriculum is tailored to meet all ACGME requirements for PGY-2 advancement in areas such as Anesthesiology, Radiology, Dermatology, Ophthalmology, Radiation Oncology, and Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation while providing broad exposure to a variety of surgical and medical subspecialties. We have worked hard to develop a diverse didactic curriculum drawing upon evidence-based medicine, USMLE Step 3 review sessions, journal clubs, and the fundamentals of the business of practicing medicine.

Macon has a vibrant downtown with a rich music heritage, many lofts, and restaurants. Macon is home to over 100 residents training in 2 major medical centers, Mercer University and their diverse undergraduate programs, the School of Medicine, and the School of Law.

We appreciate your interest in our Transitional Year program and look forward to welcoming you to Coliseum.
