Sutter Health's new residency program will expose physician trainees to multiple specialties

As part of its goal to continually train more physicians, Sacramento, Calif.-based Sutter Health is also debuting a new residency track that is designed to allow for more specialty exposure and patient contact, according to a May 2 news release.

The program, known as the "Transitional Year," will begin in summer 2024 at the health system's Sutter Roseville (Calif.) Medical Center. At first, it will only enroll 15, but could seek to expand the program's capacity after its inaugural year.

Selected residents will be able to rotate through different medical and surgical specialties for short periods of time to get more of a hands-on glimpse at different areas they may want to go into. 

The Transitional Year program is the 17th accredited graduate medical education program operated by the health system. Annually, Sutter hopes to expand these programs and train upward of 800 residents per year.
