Physician Residencies

Riverside hospital building

Riverside has a long history and demonstrated focus on physician education and offers on-site residencies in the areas of Family Medicine and OB/GYN. For students who have not yet entered a residential specialty or need a year before starting their categorical program, a "Transitional Year" residency is offered where a multi-disciplinary understanding of many medical specialties is provided. All residency programs include significant opportunity for hands-on training in a practice and acute care setting.
