Back to Residency Programs and Fellowships
The Inova Fairfax Hospital/Georgetown University Transitional Residency Program provides clinical training in general medicine, pediatrics and emergency medicine to physicians entering sub-specialty training programs, including ophthalmology, emergency medicine, radiology, neurology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, and others.
The transitional program integrates participants into current residency programs and provides a varied education experience. Residents acquire knowledge and skills related to the medical diagnosis and management of adult and pediatric patients and participate in the care of critically ill patients.
Emphasis is placed on understanding the pathologic and physiologic mechanisms of disease and on the principles of diagnosis and treatment. Residents are responsible for both diagnostic and therapeutic management, and are expected to perform and participate in the same manner as those who are at similar experience levels in currently existing teaching services.

About Georgetown University
Georgetown University was founded in 1789 by John Carroll, first archbishop of Baltimore. The School of Medicine was created in 1850 and acquired a university hospital in 1898. The original 24-bed facility has evolved into a major medical center located on the northern section of the Georgetown University campus in Washington, D.C. With a rich history of bedside teaching, Georgetown strives to deliver a balanced education in the core principles of medicine, from the biological, scientific and experiential perspectives such that the graduate is a capable physician for the 21st century.
In 1971, an inter-institutional agreement made Inova Fairfax Hospital a major affiliate with Georgetown University. Teaching services at Inova Fairfax Hospital are integrated into the Georgetown University training programs in all major clinical departments including medicine, surgery, psychiatry, orthopedics, ophthalmology and anesthesiology.
