Program Overview

Our program launched with our first intern class beginning June 2016. We accept four interns per year. Residents alternate between Internal Medicine and Pediatrics rotations every 3-4 months.

Med-Peds interns gain a solid clinical foundation by rotating through inpatient, intensive care, ambulatory, and emergency department settings at our primary training facilities, Children’s Healthâ„  Children's Medical Center Dallas, Parkland 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.

Why Med-Peds?

Cohesive 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. Med/Peds “Synergy” conferences are now part of the categorical Internal Medicine and Pediatrics noon conference curriculum; there are also dedicated monthly conferences and journal clubs specifically for Med/Peds residents.

As resident interests emerge, we have developed combined Med-Peds rotations in areas such as Global Health, Cardiology, Rheumatology, and Palliative Care. The opportunities to explore different fields through combined rotations are robust, and we enjoy developing unique individualized experiences that fit each resident’s career goals.
