Hands-on experience, exposure to medical specialties, expert guidance, and a focus on learning by doing are among the things students seek and residents value. At MacNeal Hospital, we welcome the opportunity to participate in our residents' education. We don't take their time or trust lightly. That's why we have developed a multi-faceted Transitional Year Residency program that emphasizes daily development of new skills, while offering residents the opportunity to explore their interests.
