Making a Difference Starts Here
As the Program Director of the AdventHealth Redmond’s Transitional Year Residency, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our program. We are fortunate to have the benefit of the outstanding faculty and infrastructure provided by AdventHealth Redmond’s successful Internal Medicine Residency and the over fifty-year history of innovative, state-of-the-art care provided by the physicians and staff at Redmond. It is our desire to provide you with a first post-graduate year that is an outstanding launching point for the next steps in your education and career. This Transitional Year Residency is not intended to provide you with a complete post-graduate experience but to provide you with a strong foundation in clinical medicine within a system known for its dedicated, innovative, and compassionate care.
Our affiliations with the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University and Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, and with Harbin Clinic, Georgia’s oldest and largest physician owned and directed physician group, provides robust, diverse, and exceptionally able faculty dedicated to your educational experience. The faculty at AdventHealth Redmond Graduate Medical Education have a national reputation for excellence and strong relationships with the leaders in their specialties, which place them in a unique position to help you in making the successful move to the next stage in your specialty training.
We are exceptionally blessed to live and work in a community that has a diverse economy but is uniquely committed to higher education, with four colleges and universities, a campus of the Medical College of Georgia, and outstanding public and private education. Our location, topography, and climate are an outstanding asset with easy access to the recreational opportunities of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the urban attractions of Atlanta, Chattanooga, and Birmingham. We are genuinely excited to have you consider the Transitional Year Residency Program at AdventHealth Redmond and the exceptional educational opportunities and quality of life that we enjoy here.
We’re delighted about your interest and invite you to tour our program.
