Our program launched with our first intern class beginning June 2016. We accept four interns per year. Residents will alternate between Internal Medicine and Pediatrics rotations every 3-4 months.
Med/Peds interns will gain a solid clinical foundation by rotating through inpatient, intensive care, ambulatory, and emergency department settings at our primary training facilities, Children's Health℠ Children's Medical Center Dallas, Parkland Memorial Hospital, and William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital. Increased supervisory responsibility is integrated as residents advance through the remaining years of training as well as additional time for individualized curriculum blocks. Med/Peds training affords a wide array of career possibilities, and we are committed to a truly individualized approach to foster development of each resident’s unique skills, interests, and passions.
Cohesive Med/Peds Experience
While each Med/Peds resident will be fully integrated into the categorical program experience, a number of opportunities are being developed to cultivate combined practice as well. Med/Peds "Synergy" conferences have been introduced into the categorical Internal Medicine and Pediatrics noon conference curriculum; there are also dedicated monthly conferences and journal clubs specifically for Med/Peds residents.
There will also be combined Med/Peds Rotations, including Global Health, Quality Improvement, Ambulatory Infectious Disease, Allergy/Immunology/Inner-City Asthma Program, and Pediatric to Adult Care Transition Electives in a variety of subspecialties.
After an intern year of immersion in the categorical continuity clinics, residents will join our Med/Peds Primary Care Practice at UT Southwestern from the second through fourth years of residency.
