The Grand Stand Medical Center Transitional Year Residency Program’s mission is to develop the next generation of physicians and physician leaders. As a part of HCA Healthcare, we are driven by a single mission: Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.
This program is designed to offer residents a rewarding, educational environment where residents are provided individualized learning opportunities by faculty and staff who support and sustain one another throughout quality care delivery. Our faculty are committed to ensuring the residents' clinical experience and educational needs are fulfilled while expanding residents’ perspectives to be inclusive of cultures, values, and ideals.
Thank you for your interest in our Transitional Program in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
Grand Strand Medical Center has a strong graduate medicinal education program which includes residency programs in internal medicine, general surgery, emergency medicine, family medicine, and anesthesiology. In addition, we began both an ER ultrasound fellowship and a palliative care fellowship in 2021.
Our Transitional Year Residency Program accepts 12 residents each academic year for one year of post-graduate training to prepare them for subsequent residencies in medical, surgical and other specialties. We consider all candidates who apply to our program through the ERAS application service.
The Transitional Year curriculum is tailored to meet all ACGME requirements for PGY2 advancement in areas such as anesthesiology, radiology, dermatology, radiation oncology, and physical medicine and rehabilitation. In addition, we provide broad exposure to a variety of surgical and medical subspecialties.
The Transitional Year Residency Program is sponsored by the Internal Medicine Residency Program at Grand Strand Health. The faculty is comprised of approachable, dedicated teachers who take pride in molding trainees into excellent physicians and the upper-level residents in programs across our institution are excited to work with and teach transitional year residents on their services.
The goal of our program is to provide a healthy work-life balance that provides an excellent clinical experience while allowing you time to experience our beach community and the surrounding area. Resident wellness is a major focus at our institution.
Our program sponsors several wellness events including a monthly dinner, team-building events and intermural sports within the GME programs. After you evaluate programs and see all the benefits we have to offer, we sincerely hope you will consider us for training.
