Program Overview

The program accepts four interns per year. Residents alternate between Internal Medicine and Pediatrics rotations every three to six months.

Med-Peds interns gain a solid clinical foundation by rotating through inpatient, intensive care, ambulatory, and emergency department settings at  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 an array of career possibilities, and the program's individualized approach fosters development of each resident’s unique skills, interests, and passions.

Why Med-Peds?

Med-Peds Residents discuss why they chose to train at UT Southwestern.

The Med-Peds Experience

While each Med-Peds resident is fully integrated into the categorical program experience, a number of learning opportunities are dedicated to Med-Peds.

  • “Synergy” Conferences (part of the categorical Internal Medicine and Pediatrics noon conference curriculum)
  • Dedicated monthly conferences and journal clubs specifically for Med-Peds residents

To facilitate residents' emerging interests and support their career goals, combined Med-Peds rotations have been developed in areas such as:

  • Global health
  • Cardiology
  • Rheumatology
  • Palliative care
