      The beginning of a new medical training program can be a challenging time, whether one is a medical student advancing to residency or a resident advancing to subspecialty training or fellowship. These transition periods require medical trainees to rapidly acquire new knowledge and skills while they are at the same time taking on increased responsibilities. As such, it is not surprising that these transitions are associated with significant stress and anxiety for trainees.
