I am new to the forums. Does anyone know were I can find links related to TY programs. I am curious which programs have sent out invites. Also any thoughts to what would make a competitive applicant for a transitional year program?

try general forums
some people list their first year invites on anesthesia interview thread.


Generally speaking, anesthesia applicants find 1st yr slots, obviously.

That said, many TYs are highly competitive d/t location, easiness and the fact that our competitors are those smartie pants in ophtho, rad, rad onc, derm etc.


Good luck!

Hey, your board name rocks, Sleepy! The search feature has been a friend to me the past couple years. There are various philosophies on how to approach the TY. Apply to few and scramble....Apply to 2 in each city....Apply only to the ones in your home town.
Anyway, coming up with selection criteria is a part of choosing a PGY-1 program.
