The Valley Health System Transitional Year Residency curriculum gives the resident the opportunity to rotate through a variety of clinical settings including inpatient wards, intensive care units and outpatient clinics. In addition to necessary core training, the program offers specialty-specific training for residents who plan to pursue further training in Anesthesia and Ophthalmology.

Rotations for Transitional Year residents will primarily take place at four sites: Summerlin Hospital, Spring Valley Hospital, Henderson Hospital and Centennial Hills Hospital. Our network of hospitals will enable our residents to train in an integrated system of care with a broad scope of specialties and experiences.
