Internal Medicine/Pediatrics Residency Program
Welcome to the combined Internal Medicine/Pediatrics (Med-Peds) Residency Program at UT Southwestern Medical Center! Our program provides our residents with an outstanding educational experience in both internal medicine and pediatrics at this renowned academic center. By having our trainees rotate at three nationally recognized and state-of-the-art hospitals, we provide a supportive and intellectually stimulating environment that allows our residents to succeed in their career goals—whether those goals include primary care, hospitalist medicine, global health, subspecialty fellowships, or academic medicine.
As a Med-Peds resident, you will alternate between internal medicine and pediatric rotations every three to six months. As an intern, you will gain a solid clinical foundation through inpatient, intensive care, ambulatory, and emergency department settings. As you advance through the program, you will be given increased supervisory responsibilities as well as additional time for individualized curriculum blocks. We welcome you to explore the nuances of our program through this website. If you have any additional questions about our program, please do not hesitate to reach out to us and we would be happy to tell you more.
