For more information about our program choose a question below:
I have an interview scheduled with an advanced placement program (Anesthesia, Dermatology, Ophthalmology, Radiation Oncology, etc.) at Henry Ford Hospital. Do I still have to apply for the TY program?
How many residents do you have?
We take 17 residents in each year. There are no specific allocations per specialty, and therefore the composition of the class varies every year. Please see our current residents and alumni pages for details
How do I apply to the Transitional Year (TY) program?
We accept applications only through ERAS. Only completed applications will be reviewed and considered for granting interviews. Applications received after December 1 may not be considered as interview slots are likely full.
Do you participate in the match?
Yes, we participate in the NRMP. All our positions, including DO positions, are filled through the NRMP. We do not offer any out-of-match positions. Our NRMP code is 1300999P0 and should be placed on the supplemental list attached to the advanced program of your choice. Ophthalmology candidates should use the same code (1300999P0) on their main list.

I have an interview scheduled with an advanced placement (AP) program (Dermatology, Ophthalmology, Radiation Oncology, etc.) at Henry Ford Hospital. Do I still have to apply for the TY program?
The TY program has very strong ties to the AP programs at Henry Ford Hospital, but please note that TY is a separate program and you must apply to TY to be considered for the position. If you have been granted interviews by both TY and AP programs, we will attempt to coordinate the interview day aiming to optimize your travel.
Are you participating in the iCompare study?
Yes, the Henry Ford Hospital Internal Medicine program has been randomized to the intervention arm of the study. The only deviation from the traditional duty hour standards will happen during your IM floor months, on Friday and Saturday (the days night float is off). On these two days, one intern would be expected to stay overnight in a 24h call. A senior resident would also be on call with the intern. This would happen to you at a maximum frequency of 2-3 times each month you are on an IM Floor month (10-15 days in the entire year). Please note that the ACGME is currently in the process of revising Duty Hour guidelines for all specialties and the proposed requirements would make iCompare-like rules applicable to every program in the country
