The Med-Peds training program is four years and is currently divided into 3 month blocks, alternating pediatrics and medicine. Ultimately, residents will rotate in 3 month blocks for the first 2 years and then switch to 4 month blocks for the last 2 years. This allows for some seasonal variation as residents become more comfortable switching back and forth between the disciplines.

The program follows the Med-Peds guidelines agreed upon by both the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Pediatrics. The goal of the curriculum is to offer comprehensive training for any of several possible career paths, including primary care Med-Peds, subspecialty training, academic medicine and even research. The curriculum is flexible to help accommodate the needs of each individual resident. A sample HOI schedule is shown below.
