Thank you for your interest in Riverside Community Hospital/University
of California Riverside School of Medicine Transitional Year Residency.
Riverside Community Hospital is conveniently located in sunny Southern
California in the Inland Empire just east of Los Angeles and Orange County.
We have been providing state of the art healthcare in the area for over
110 years. RCH is a tertiary regional referral center for STEMI, Neurointerventional
stroke, sepsis, and trauma. The hospital recently had a major expansion
with a beautiful new tower increasing the total number of beds to 478.
Our high volume high acuity emergency department sees close to 120,000
patients per year.
We are affiliated with the UCR School of Medicine which represents the
newest expansion of the University of California system, joining a prestigious
group of medical educators in our state. As the affiliated residency program
for UCR, we look forward to a long tradition of excellence in patient
care and medical education. The transitional year residents will train
directly with clinical professors and instructors from UCR.
Our program is an ACGME accredited one year program with 13 positions.
We offer a very flexible curriculum with a total of five blocks of elective
which will allow you to personalize the program to your educational needs.
This flexibility will serve as a launching point for your medical career
as you transition into an advanced categorical residency. You will have
the opportunity to work alongside residents and faculty from the ACGME
approved programs in Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine, General Surgery,
Internal Medicine, and Neurology. We anticipate approved programs in Anesthesia,
Cardiology, and Radiology in the near future.
What is truly unique about our program is that it is based in a community
hospital. This translates into a highly collegial environment with an
emphasis on resident wellness. We anticipate our residents will be able
to meet both their personal and educational goals in this environment.
We look forward to helping you build a solid foundation for a well-rounded
long term career in medicine.
