Curriculum & Schedule

"One of the most positive things about the intern year at Gundersen was the caliber of the fellow transitional year residents. It was humbling to work with such an intelligent, capable, motivated, compassionate, hard-working and fun group. Additionally, I felt like the ability to perform numerous procedures (intubations, central lines, arterial lines, chest tubes, etc.) was an enormous asset for someone going into anesthesiology."
David Barbara, 2009 Transitional Year Graduate

"After spending a year on the floors at Gundersen, I came away with even greater respect for the culture of the hospital and the quality of residency training. I feel like I had an excellent opportunity to work as a physician with broad exposure to general medicine and surgery, with electives that were relevant to my future work in Radiation Oncology." 
- Dean Shumway, MD, Radiation Oncology - University of Michigan, 2011 Transitional Year graduate
