Internal Medicine-Pediatrics Residency Program
Med-Peds Program Overview
The Combined Internal Medicine-Pediatrics (Med-Peds) Residency Program provides residents a comprehensive educational experience in both internal medicine and pediatrics. By rotating at three nationally recognized hospitals, residents learn in a supportive and intellectually stimulating environment that enables their career success.
Med-Peds residents alternate between internal medicine and pediatric rotations every three to six months. Interns gain a solid clinical foundation through inpatient, intensive care, ambulatory, and emergency department settings. As they advance through the program, residents are given increased supervisory responsibilities, as well as additional time for individualized curriculum blocks.
