Thank you for considering the Sunrise Health Graduate Medical Education Consortium Transitional Year Program based at MountainView Hospital!
The program is supported by the HCA GME community and our ACGME-accredited programs in Internal Medicine and General Surgery through the Sunrise Health Graduate Medical Education Consortium. Our shared passion for teaching and commitment to a high standard of education and training will be the foundation for our program. We are an ACGME-accredited program and we welcomed our inaugural class of 13 Transitional Year residents July 1, 2017.
As the program director, I’m delighted to impart my years of experience and eager to further advance my involvement in graduate medical education. I am committed to preparing my residents with the required knowledge and skills as they embark onto the next level of their training.
