Transitional Year

Resident Life

Join our healthcare community.

Your training will take place at both Avera and Sanford medical centers. Both health systems serve as major referral centers for a large geographic region including South Dakota and neighboring states. This ensures you will encounter patients with very complex, challenging clinical conditions. You will also have the opportunity to experience a variety of private practices in the Sioux Falls, SD area as well.

Enjoy life in Sioux Falls.

Our program provides a nice work-life balance for you. The Sioux Falls community provides events downtown including sidewalk art festivals, farmer’s markets, and other food/shopping events. Bike trails, year-round outdoor activities, live music are among the many things you can enjoy outside of residency. We hope Sioux Falls will exceed your expectations!
