Hi, I was hoping someone could explain the required transitional-osteopathic year residency thing to me. 1. I have been accepted to NSU COM, but what is the thing with Florida requiring an extra residency year? 2. Does this year count towards your residency (i.e., would you do 1 "transitional year" and 2 years in an IM residency, instead of 3 years in an IM residency)? I'm really clueless on this, so any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
