We’ve designed a program with resident life as a top priority.
Customize Your Education
We understand that each resident that enters our program has different learning goals and expectations for the Transitional Year. Our curriculum is built with that in mind. Each resident has the opportunity and freedom to tailor their education to fit their individual learning goals and provide them with experiences that fit their future specialty.
Our program is committed to the wellbeing of our residents. We strive to continuously find ways to promote and enhance resident well-being, combat burnout, and help our residents find meaning in medicine. The knowledge and skills necessary to maintain resilience, and experience joy during training, is an essential foundation for future success not only in everyday life, but future practice as well.

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
Our program is committed to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in all that we do. We believe that diversity in our residency program leads to stronger research and educational experiences for our residents, better care for our patients, and ultimately, important advances in the field of medicine. As such, we are committed to recruiting residents from all backgrounds and providing them with the knowledge, skills, resources, and opportunities needed to become culturally-competent and socially-responsible physicians.
Camaraderie with Fellow Residents
We strive to foster an environment of support and inclusion within our program and institution. Residents can expect to experience a collegial, experiential, and hands-on learning environment inclusive of peers not only in our TY program, but also from the University of North Dakota’s numerous other residency and fellowship programs (Internal Medicine, Psychiatry, Family Medicine, Neurology, Surgery, Orthopedic Surgery, Hematology-Oncology, and Geriatric Medicine). The camaraderie felt among residents in all these programs is frequently noted and is something we are proud to highlight.
