    Pardon my ignorance...

    From what I understand, trasitional year is an intern year with a MIX of Medicine, Surgery, OB/GYN, etc.

    Are there transitional years that are strictly Peds, FP, ER that would serve as your intern year before going into, say, PM&R, Ophthalmology, etc.?

    Didn't someone just make a thread about this on this forum?

    If you are talking about a 1 year program strictly in one field, they are called prelim years, not transitional years. There's another thread asking about which different prelim years are offerred.

    It is called a "specialty emphasis" internship.

    I know you can do them for EM.

    This might be an option for DOs but I have not heard of anything like this for MDs. There are Transitional years and they are all a little different but none do too much of anything. Think of being a 3rd yr student again... but this time you are the intern.
