The Transitional Year Program at Mather Hospital aims to recruit a diverse class.  We strive to provide a training environment is one of respect and inclusivity.  We also ensure sensitivity to the needs of our trainees outside of medicine. We recognize the need to address both fatigue and the lack of work/life balance and have created a supportive environment that enables residents to grow, not only as leaders in healthcare, but as participants in society. We encourage all our residents to balance priorities between responsibilities as a physician and responsibilities to friends and family. 


Once you embark on your journey, you will learn firsthand what it means to be a part of the family that is Mather Hospital. As an academic community hospital, the learning environment is enhanced by the atmosphere of mutual respect between the patients, their families, and the staff of the hospital.  It is impossible to walk through the halls of Mather Hospital without feeling the warmth from those you pass by, which makes training a Mather a unique experience.   


Congratulations on starting your journey in graduate medical education and we look forward to welcoming you to the Mather Family.
